Ohman Roll Out

The Sacramento Bee editorial board posted this photo on their Facebook page showing their new staff cartoonist, Jack Ohman, on the front of newspaper boxes around town. Ohman left the Oregonian last year and started at the Bee last week, where he is continuing to do five editorial cartoons a week and a larger Sunday comic that combines opinion, observation, memoir, and journalism. They even shot a little video of his first day on the job. ("This is the first time I've had a first day at a job since October 24th, 1983.") In the age where a staff hire is exceedingly rare – about once every five years or so now – it's nice to see the outlets that go for it really feature their cartoonists prominently. They get it. More of this, please.
