As a journalist in San Diego, I got to know a lot of the other local media types, and one of my favorites was J.D. Crowe, who was the cartoonist for the Evening Tribune. When the Tribune closed, the new Union-Tribune decided to keep Steve Kelly and drop Crowe. Wrong decision.
After a couple of years, I lost track of J.D. Through a media blog, I learn he's now in Mobile and he's getting some attention for this cartoon about the state of the newspaper industry.
To me, there's some irony, because when Copley decided to close one of it's papers, not only was the wrong cartoonist kept, the entire wrong staff was kept. The Evening Tribune was by far a much better newspaper than the anemic San Diego Union.
