Picking on the Commercial Appeal
used to be its own reward, back in the day when they were the big corporate Goliath and we were the little dude with a slingshot. As the paper has continued to decline, it's become a weekly, though not entirely joyless
, chore. Still, it's good to feel appreciated. So thanks, Jim Palmer
, for this cartoon inspired by Fly on the Wall's regular "Dammit Gannett"
Jim's a first generation Memphis Flyer
vet who contributed illustrations for columns by Lydel Sims
. He's the creator of Memphis' own Li'l E
and your Pesky Fly's very favorite cartoon about the journalist's life.
