Not a Dream! Not an Imaginary Story!

Congratulations to James Kochalka Superstar who has been named Cartoonist Laureate of the State of Vermont; the first time a cartoonist has held such a position.

[Correction: See Comment by Pat Race. It seems that Alaska beat Vermont to the punch.]

Anyone want to try to create such a position in one of the other 49? Imagine the competition in Oregon!

    What about poet laureate? The man composed hockey monkey. Isn’t that what Vermont is known for?

    Alaska has a cartoon laureate who was named in 2008, Chad Carpenter, the creator of Tundra.
