The cartoon above may contain a first in the long, prestigious history of editorial cartooning: product placement. We figured there are at least two, maybe three of you who have managed to resist the subtle marketing efforts for our book, Black & White World, like the ad to the right. So we've resorted to product placement in our cartoons. We've even employed a subliminal manipulation tactic involving the cute dog in the upper left-hand corner.
You looked at him, didn't you? Yes, you did. Don't be surprised if later you have the urge to buy a bug-eyed puppy dog and read to him excerpts from Black & White World.
