My office today Jackson

Today I took a quick trip down I-55 for the Jackson Optimist Club’s weekly meeting. Even though I was a last minute fill-in, the club treated me warmly. (I got a hamburger and some vegetables. Never underestimate the power and versatility of hamburger steaks and vegetables. My mission. My mission was to brag about the outstanding work of my Mississippi Today coworkers and let them know that they should be looking at us. I joked that I was following their philosophy until I reached this part: To devote so much time to improving yourself that you don’t have time to criticize other people. My career as an editorial cartoonist is over. However, I do believe that this part of my creed summarised my mission: To be as passionate about others’ success as I am about mine. Yup. Mississippi Today is doing a great job. I’m looking forward to my next trip to spread the word. I look forward to another great piece of hamburger steak.
