A national publication for the automotive industry just hired me to do a weekly "editorial cartoon" ...and being a car enthusiast, I jumped at the chance.
They wanted the first cartoon to center around Honda's decision last week to kill off the Accord Hybrid model, (http://www.sacbee.com/103/story/219149.html), after lackluster sales. (My opinion is that people who like to think "green" are not likely want a car that can do 0-60 in under six seconds...with decent but not great gas mileage. They want to be seen helping the environment and the Toyota Prius, with its odd shape, broadcasts it a lot more.)
The Sopranos ended its long, fabulous run on HBO this week, too. You never know what will happen when you throw two unrelated subjects into a blender but this time it seemed to work okay.
