Bagley’s cartoon on criticizing Obamacare


Generally the Pulitzer Prize committees look at specific works submitted by candidates.  Bagley‘s day-in, day-out brilliance must make it difficult for editors to choose what to nominate, no?

This cartoon is just perfect, in so many ways:

I hope these cartoons get picked up by newspapers far outside of Utah. They deserve to be seen more broadly. Click cartoon to go to Salt Lake Tribune's archives of Bagley's work.

    Ed, I only publish here on WordPress. Eventually, I’d love to work at a regular location, but right now I’m burning the midnight oil hobbying it up.

    I also like Grondahl and Benson. I met Benson at UVU six or seven years ago. He was just as funny in person as are his comics.

    Aaron, I was in Utah when Bagley and Grondahl started out — I’m fond of Grondahl’s stuff, too. Both of them have an almost-no-holds-barred quality that almost always produces a visceral reaction as well as an intellectual reaction. Grondahl’s topics seemed to have become much more local when he switched to the Ogden Standard-Examiner from the Deseret News. But in any case, Utah’s very luck to have two great cartoonists working regularly in local newspapers.

    Steve Benson, now at the Arizona Republic, interned in Orrin Hatch’s Senate office while I was there. He was, then, another firebrand, and I don’t think he’s cooled. Something about Utah and Western air, maybe.

    Here’s a recent Grondahl on tuition increases:

    I agree with you. I have been reading Bagley since he drew for BYU’s Daily Planet. I don’t always agree and some of my drawings are reactions to his, but I always look forward to his newest comic.
