Dana Fradon, Prolific New Yorker Cartoonist, Is Dead at 97 - The New York Times
Obituary of a prolific 'New Yorker' cartoonist (born and educated in Chicago), with examples and notes about his practices.

On a social imaginary: “The society I seek,” he said in his book, “is the society given lip service to by one and all. Governed by the Boy Scout oath, the West Point oath and the Golden Rule, it is populated by warmhearted TV Waltons, and protected from harm by honest Starskys and Hutches.”

“Teach a man to fish and you eat fish every damn day.”

The New Yorker: Why Facts Don’t Change Our Minds New discoveries about the human mind show the limitations of reason. By Elizabeth Kolbert February 19, 2017
In a new book, “The Enigma of Reason” (Harvard), the cognitive scientists Hugo Mercier and Dan Sperber take a stab at answering this question. Mercier, who works at a French research institute in Lyon, and Sperber, now based at the Central European University, in Budapest, point out that reason is an evolved trait, like bipedalism or three-color vision. It emerged on the savannas of Africa, and has to be understood in that context.

Daily Cartoon: Monday, March 18th | The New Yorker
"If only a twentysomething mega-celebrity/style icon/trailblazing entrepreneur/regular person just like us would weigh in about our country's current ideological crisis in a caption beneath a sexy yet tasteful selfie, then we would know how to feel about it all!"

Joe Gould’s Secret—I By Joseph Mitchell | The New Yorker | September 19, 1964
oe Gould was an odd and penniless and unemployable little man who came to the city in 1916 and ducked and dodged and held on as hard as he could for over thirty-five years. He was a member of one of the oldest families in New England (“The Goulds Were the Goulds,” he used to say, “when the Cabots and the Lowells were clamdiggers”), he was born and brought up in a town near Boston in which his father was a leading citizen, and he went to Harvard, as did his father and grandfather before him, but he claimed that until he arrived in New York City he had always felt out of place.
