Better Late Than Never
Successful memorial cartoons for notable folks have a lot to do with timing. The sooner I publish the cartoon upon learning of the death, the bigger impact it will have. Chuck Berry died last Saturday, and I was a fan, but my head was stuck in math world doing my income taxes. My wife and I are very good at keeping receipts, but not so good at organizing them. We do the same thing every year; basically throwing them into a barrel and then, come tax time, sorting through and categorizing them into to different barrels. Every year, I suggest we do it monthly and then every year, we don’t. So, anyway, our system makes tax time intense, distracting and nerve-wracking, but, it’s done.
