Cartoonist Steve Kelley Laid Off in New Orleans

Political cartoonist Steve Kelley, who had been fired by the Union-Tribune more than a decade ago, will be laid off by the New Orleans Times-Picayune, according to story in Poynter.org. After a nasty fight with the U-T that went to court, Kelley joined the Times-Picayune in 2002. He will lose his job October 1 when the paper goes to a three-day-a-week print schedule. Kelley told Poynter, "I would have encouraged the paper to transition away from print editions more gradually." Kelley is co-creator behind the cartoon strip "Dustin," which is syndicated to more than 320 papers.

All these firings and layoffs prove that newspapers are no longer a growth industry, not that they have been for at least twenty years. But the shrinkage of circulation, ad revenue, and measurable readership is, if anything, accelerating now. Personally, I don't think that New Orleans should exist at all, located where it is. But since it has been there for over 300 years, will continue. But it may only exist as a much smaller city than it was during the 20th century. That doesn't help the prospects for a daily paper either.

Many metro dailies are in a death spiral. Going to three-day circulation of the print edition is evidence. You are correct: The raison d'etre for New Orleans's existence is gone, but it will take decades before this is obvious. Best, Don Bauder

Steve Kelley is one of he best political cartoonist around........his replacement at the UT is also very talented, but not to the level of Kelley.

Steve Kelley is indeed talented and very witty. At least, his current syndicated cartoon is very successful. Best, Don Bauder
