Cartoonist gets a show

Doug DavisDoug Davis broke in as the Downtown News editorial cartoonist by lampooning the insular concerns of downtown bloggers. He ruffled feathers, but "when I saw that reaction, I said, 'I gotta give him a show,'" says photographer Gary Leonard. That exhibit of Davis' cartoons opens tonight at Leonard's studio, 740 S. Olive Street. The date is appropriate. Davis is a Leap Day baby.
