The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

Incessant Barking

by Newland

I found this in The New Yorker, which has the best cartoons of any magazine, about 5 years ago. It's signed "Gregory," and it's one of my favorite cartoons of all time.

The caption reads, "I had my own blog for a while, but I decided to go back to just pointless, incessant barking."

This may be unlawful use of copyright material, but we don't make any money off its use, and I sure hate to see a good cartoon only get one publication. If anyone has any objection to such occasional uses of other folks' work, let me know.

I decided, in the midst of a depressing lack of inspiration, to post this instead of saying something pointless.

You can claim honest educational use if you are careful, so I would not worry about using the cartoon in the manner you have done. I am not a lawyer thank God and the only trustworthy lawyer who I know of who I would be willing to represent me is Lincoln. With my last lawyer emailing me that I was never a victim of crime because no investigation, no charges, and no conviction ever took place then I asked how anyone could report being a possible victim if first the other events needed to take place. I am sure there are honest lawyers out there but they likely give up an find a less dishonest way to work.
