Signe Wilkinson

Signe Wilkinson Pulitzer Prize winning Editorial Cartoonist Signe Wilkinson was born in the depths of the baby boom and graduated from her suburban Philadelphia high school about the same year the SAT scores began their slide.

After acquiring a BA in English from a western university of middling academic reputation, Wilkinson was unprepared for real work ... so she became a reporter, stringing for the West Chester (PA) Daily Local News. She also worked for the Quakers, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, and with a housing project in Cyprus, a job that ended with a bang when a coup d'etat was followed by a

TONIGHT! The incomparable Ed Sorel talks about childhood in the Bronx, trying to learn to draw at art school devoted to abstraction, how he finally came into his style, NYC literary life in the 1950s-60s until today,
and, most touchingly, his happy marriage and great kids. THe front piece drawing is a tender tribute to his late wife Nancy. Did I forget to mention he met her at Quaker meeting?

The approximately 73% male Texas legislature and their 100% male (allegedly) Governor Abbott drove me out of retirement with their recent sanctimonious abortion legislation. If they wanted to end abortion they could zip up their pants and keep them zipped. I can't let my birth state go to the dogs without a fight!

A brilliant young relative of mine who has actually spent time working in Afghanistan and knows more about that world than I ever will and saw this cartoon said, "Just don't be surprised how many Afghans would choose the 15th Century." Just a reminder how different our worlds are.

One of the things I most like about in person voting is being recognized by the loyal volunteer neighbors who person the polling places for decades. But if we're going to have it for regular voters, we should have it for everyone who votes on laws that determine the future of our republic. Let's see... whom might that include?....

One good thing about retirement is not having to jump to the drawing board at every jolt in news cycle. I'm going straight for the "olds cycle" (now known as "recycle") with a couple of toons done over the years about America's Dad -- from the time he advised young men to pull up their pants to a reminder that other
men accused of harassing apparently had better lawyers. I couldn't fit it in but before his fall from grace, I drew a 1997 sympathy cartoon when Cosby's son died.

RIDERS OF JUSTICE | Official Movie Website | A Magnet Releasing and Magnolia Pictures Movie | Starring Mads Mikkelsen | Now Available Everywhere.

“Riders of Justice”is best movie I’ve seen in, ummm, lots of years. Granted, I’m not a reliable critic. I leave that to Carrie Rickey and Gary Thompson. But if you’re looking for an action packed, slyly funny, ingeniously plotted, tender finish with lots of dead bodies, many great actors and one young actress, try it out.

It’s the exact opposite of Nomadland except that the two lead actors manage to get through their respective films with one facial expression. https://www.ridersofjustice.com

RIDERS OF JUSTICE follows recently-deployed Markus, who is forced to return home to his care for his teenage daughter after his wife is killed in a tragic train accident. But when a survivor of the wrecked train surfaces claiming foul play, Markus begins to suspect his wife was murdered and embarks....

Ummm. Anyone else a little nervous that over half of US companies, local governments, schools, healthcare etc., etc. etc. have a propensity to be hit by ransomware (according to 5/11/21 WSJ chart)? Pipeline just the biggest to directly hit our wallets and interconnected digital security.

Much as I prefer sending paper products through the mail to sending messages via snoop dog internet providers, I recently received a post card mailed from approximately 5 miles away in another Philadelphia zip code well over two weeks after it was mailed. Sigh. https://www.gocomics.com/signewilkinson/2021/05/03

Let me be the last to wish everyone a liberated World Press Freedom Day. Odd it's still called free "Press". My former "papers" just got rid of their presses. The internet spreads the news but news PAPERS are better imagery for cartooning. Knowing what cartoonists around the world have faced, I'm grateful for our free speech protections.

Looking at the yet unopened Jury Duty notice sitting next to my drawing board, I started thinking what it must be like for the jurors deliberating today at the Chauvin trial. No matter their decision, they will change history for more than the man on trial.

Help me. I am a kidnap victim. Somebody is taking over my mind and biologically enslaving me. When I go for help to the medical and mental health communities, they treat me like believing this type of crime is possible is a symptom of a mental illness and misdiagnose me with Schizophrenia in 4 states and Washington DC. The FBI has blocked my cell phone calls and told me not to call 911. In 2009, the police threatened to arrest me if I called 911. News agencies and human rights organizations and politicians will not help me. This has been going on for 12 years. They will not let me go. I live in Beaverton, OR. My cell phone number is 503-330-1268. My address is 12310 SW Center ST. Apt 17 Beaverton OR 97005. Offering 1-million-dollar reward to people who save me. Sent request by webmail to New York Office but only to subscription and membership people. I think my current psychiatrist is keeping me from getting help by asserting that I am crazy but am not sure. Twenty other psychiatrists and health care organizations have mislabeled me with a biological mental illness since I was 46 years old and found out I was a biological slave. Don’t know if my assailants are interfering with my email and computer. I can barely function. Help me. They hurt me all the time, every day and nobody cares. Psychiatrist at Salem Hospital told me there is no such thing as a crime victim who has had their mind taken over when I called and went there on March 8th. They refused to help me. More details in attached letters. Completely helpless. Please help me. They are hurting me. All alone. Contacted private investigators, police, the FBI, the medical and mental health community, various organizations, politicians, and went on Facebook. No help. Completely helpless. For some reason my assailants are making me write this email, but they control that. I do not know if any of my emails and phone calls are going out or if my assailants are controlling that too. All alone. No technical skills. Only 2.5 years of college. Helpless. Offering one-million-dollar reward to anybody who helps to free me. I will get the money from lawsuits. Help me. Desperate. Sincerely Catherine Schneider 12310 SW Center St. Apt #17 Beaverton, OR 97005 503-330-1268 [email protected]

Signe, so sad to hear you are retiring! Will miss your incredible wit, your feminism, your caring about the world. You deserve the pleasure of retirement, but you will be missed!!
Congratulations on this, Signe! Loving it!
To The Left He will have to be dragged out ranting and raving at this rate. There is some speculation that when he goes down to Mar-a-Largo for the holidays he might not come back. But that would conflict with his plan to fly out of D.C. on January 20, 2021, and hold a rally in Florida during the Ingarual in an attempt to steal attention from President-Elect Joe Biden.
