Appreciation thread for Pittsburgh editorial cartoonist Rob Rogers

Rob Rogers had been the popular editorial cartoonist for the Pittsburgh Post Gazette for 25 years, but he was recently fired for political reasons. The new editorial director of the Post Gazette refused to publish about 3 weeks of Rob's cartoons because they were considered "anti-Trump", and then he was let go in mid-June.

Rogers is still drawing his popular cartoons and sharing them on his website here: (link) http://robrogers.com/

Many Rogers toons have a liberal/Democratic/anti-Trump feel to them, while others deal with local Pittsburgh issues of one stripe or another. His popular cartoon series called "Brewed on Grant" satirize Pittsburgh city and county politics, and occasionally he'll do a toon for one of our beloved sports teams. Meanwhile Rogers is lining up paying work by getting published in a new liberal start-up publication called Pittsburgh Current which should be hitting the streets this week. Rogers also has a crowdfunding effort with support from many of his fans on Pantreon.

Here are just a few of Rob's recent toons that can be seen on his website, but didn't make it into the newspaper.

Thanks friends!
