How Sweep it is
I did well at the 2015 Press Club of Long Island Media Awards. Common Core mockery was popular with newspaper judges this season.
My winning entries:
First place, from Newsday
The judges said, “A clever take on the local – and national – drama surrounding Common Core educational standards. It is well-drawn, with nice use of color.”
Second place, from the Syosset/Jericho Tribune
This past weekend was the NY Press Association’s “Better Newspaper Contest”.
I scored my first statewide first place award. The judges had this to say:
“Great job in bringing a universal truth to a local issue.”
Here’s the winning cartoon and your daily dose of universal truth. I knew the common core was good for something.
Who can tell?
Gone to the dogs.
Islanders II: The Sequel
The NY Islanders are planning to build a practice facility in Hicksville, probably in an attempt to placate all the fans they snubbed by leaving town.
It seems like someone wasn’t thinking ahead when they, um, took my suggestion.
