We’re getting to be like old friends, aren’t we? I know I’ve shown you this cartoon before and told you this story, but here it is again. Speaking of Hurricanes. The framed original of this 1997 A&J strip belonged to my good friend and neighbor John in Pass Christian. Being a painter himself, he particularly admired the artwork in this particular piece. However, it was lost in Hurricane Katrina, along with John’s house and much of everything else he owned. In the days after the storm, I helped John pick through the rubble of his home, and we saved many things, including some art pieces, but we never found this cartoon.
