Greenberg on his 'crappy anniversary'

Steve Greenberg, LA Observed's editorial cartoonist, posts at his Cagle.com blog about his year of underemployment since being laid off by the Ventura County Star. "I thought my position was safe, especially since I’d just received a glowing performance evaluation," he says. "But since their pages and sections were shrinking, as were their revenues, they decided an artist was no longer necessary." He describes how a retinal detachment in September temporarily blinded him in one eye, and how his LA Sketchbook here at LA Observed has turned him into "the most visible person doing cartoons about L.A. and surroundings."
