    Mr. Ariail,
    I am very glad that WIS TV has brought you back! I dropped my State subscription when the change was made dropping your cartoons.
    We need the creative and humorous touch to a chaotic and economically challenging time. So, I for one, am glad you’re back. I’m sure WIS and its’ listeners welcome you to a great team!

    Thanks so much, Peggy. Please let the folks at know how you feel ,too. For all others who don’t know ,my cartoons will now be featured every Wednesday night on The 7:00 Report. ( WIS is the Columbia ,S.C. NBC affiliate.)

    Robert, great news for you! And another great editorial that tells more of what is going on with this administration than any hour of talking head blather on TV.

    Good for you and for WIS TV. I also cancelled my subscription. Your cartoons were the best feature of that paper and they dropped you. Their mistake.

    RA, first off, congrats on your new employment!

    Now as to the cartoon: too bad we can’t juxtaposition the amount of money spent to land those jobs! The jobs bird would look even smaller. What a turkey! Oh, wait, the turkey is the one holding the platter.

    Congratulations, Robert! Looks like I’ll be watching WIS tonight. I hope things continue to look up for you.

    I just want to clarify, that I am not employed by WIS-TV. They, like the 600 plus newspapers I’m in , are my syndication clients. So, I’m still looking for a new newspaper home. The TV gig is unique, though. I think I’m the only editorial cartoonist to be laid off and then featured in the same market on television.

    I enjoy your cartoons, but the way they were presented on WIS needs a lot of improvement. I don’t know how you best broadcast print material on television. Maybe do a scan and a static screen shot, like a test pattern.

    How do you syndicate SC political-based cartoons to 600+ newspapers? I wouldn’t think most outside of SC would really care about local politics or issues.

    Thanks, Bill. Most of my cartoons aren’t on South Carolina topics, but some (like Sanford’s affair) are understood outside of the state so I send them along to my syndicate.

    Bill, it’s a new format for me and WIS, so I’m sure we’ll tweak it to improve the product and delivery.
