First they came for the cartoonists, and I said nothing, because I can't draw. But neither can they. That isn't the point. The point is that during these times of economic crisis, independent news weeklies, especially those owned by huge corporations like Village Voice Media, which kind of contradicts that whole independent part, because if they were truly independent, they could decide for themselves whether or not they want to try to ride out these tough times by giving their readers even less reason to pick up a copy of their news weekly.
Anyway, support your cartoonists in your local paper, because if you don't speak up for them, who will?
