Cartooning is a wonderful career, and I'd like more women to get to have it. I can't think of any reason why we won't see more syndicated female cartoonists in the future.
My dog was with me all the time. I talked to my dog. She was my best buddy. I shared all my secrets with her, but I don't think I every really tried jokes out with the dog.
I can't tell my conscience from my insecurities.
Each of us wages a private battle each day between the grand fantasies we have for ourselves and what actually happens.
Men date. Women have relationships.
