I'm a writer because I have stage fright.
I had the privilege to attend a reading by Jeff Koterba today. He is a political cartoonist and an independent. During the reading, he mentioned that he disliked the current squabbling in congress and carefully chose his political commentary on an issue-by-issue basis. Witty and humble, Koterba has been a political cartoonist at his local paper for the past 25 years. He dedicated his book Drawing You In to his mother because she has clipped and kept every single cartoon he has illustrated from the paper to date.
