    Beth ~ Much thanks for posting the link. Your interview picks up the story right where I left off. Nice. Mr. Fish makes me chuckle, even when I disagree with him. I like that. . And Rob ~ I'd certainly rank Ed Sorel high in my personal pantheon. I love how his lines have grace and flair, even when he's skewering his victims. I'm elated that he's still producing, most recently for Vanity Fair's Palin piece. I also include Sorel in my design history talks. His Sinatra cover for Esquire was a classic. Those were the days, back when magazine editors had guts. But that's another story... which I touched upon here: http://www.aiga.org/content.cfm/sex-and-outrage-in-cartoonland I believe Ring Lardner Jr.'s script for Altman's MASH was actually based on Mauldin's "Up Front." I appreciate the rest of your letter as well, Rob. Thank you.

    Robert: it looks like Denis has beaten me to the punch with his own (visual) bio, 20 years in the making... and five years after I mentioned it in the above profile. http://www.comicsbeat.com/2010/02/23/the-oddly-compelling-art-if-denis-kitchen-due-from-dark-horse/#more-9740

    What made the TV incident Swanson describes even more bizarre is that Pyne would neither show the photo nor allow Durante's name to be mentioned, taking Krassner's point – that obscenity only exists in the mind of the beholder – to an absurdist plateau in the imaginations of the puzzled viewers. But thanks to the internet, people need wonder no more; the photo is now online, in context: http://www.ep.tc/realist/74/15.html ~ mike D
