Conrad makes his point

Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Paul Conrad occupied the prime spot on the Los Angeles Times op-ed page from 1964 to 1993, and I know from signing books next to him that he remains popular in L.A. (His latest, an autobiography called I, Con, is coming from my publisher, Angel City Press.) These days his cartoons are syndicated four days a week by Tribune Media Services. His most recent, left, makes a statement about what's going on at his former newspaper.

See it bigger at Conrad's website. He was also recently the subject of an Independent Lens film on PBS.
