With All Of The Bad News Out There, This Makes Me Feel Better

I usually don't like kicking people when they are down, but I will make an exception for cockholsters such as Ted Rall.

“My job was finding new talent -- comic strip artists, columnists and writers of puzzles -- to syndicate to newspapers,” Rall writes on his blog. “Considering the circumstances, I enjoyed remarkable success. ... I am proud of what I accomplished.”

In that position, Rall helped bring to newspaper pages such strips as Tak Toyoshima's "Secret Asian Man," the first daily comic about Asian-Americans by an Asian-American cartoonist, Keith Knight's "The Knight Life," and Dan Thompson’s "Rip Haywire,” among others. He recruited Signe Wilkinson to draw "Family Tree," and oversaw the transition of R. Stevens’ Web comic "Diesel Sweeties" into daily newspaper version (which has since ended).

“So if you're a creator who was hoping to pitch me something, I'm sorry -- I can't help you anymore,” he adds. “If you need a cartoonist, a writer, or an editor, or anything else, please drop me a line. I need work, and fast.”

Again, fuck you, Ted Rall. Enjoy playing the martyred "artist" role.
