Post Mag Blows Lid Off Cartoonist's Shady Past

Article here, photos here, and my profound thanks to Michael Cavna for omitting the embarrassing stuff and Dustin Fenstermacher for only getting my good side.

Richard - I've enjoyed this fine clutch of views into your world. One of your "Richard's Poor Almanac" pieces that has lodged firmly in my mind was about the character of certain plants. The Impatiens that demanded water is my favorite and, it occurs to me, had a lot in common with Alice Otterloop. Any chance that you could resurrect it for the blog?

Great article, well deserved. The drawings were a lot of fun, the photos were illuminating (you sure like Degas) and if anything, Cavna's praise was understated. Good luck on the 28th!
