For many of us, the editorial cartoons are a must-see, whether they are in a student newspaper, a local daily or an international publication. It’s a place where the First Amendment is showcased on a daily basis. It’s where news, politics, irony, humor and art come together.
Today’s #MediaMonday comes to us from David W. Fitzsimmons, a multi-talented, all-around journalist who calls Tucson home, but whose work is seen and read worldwide.
So, Fitz, time to share!
