Bob Mankoff, cartoon editor of The New Yorker

Actually, Bob Mankoff was in town to speak at Washington and Lee University about humor and cartooning.  Brett Koth (creator of Diamond Lil) and I had talked to a W&L class earlier and then joined Bob and his host, Prof Julie Woodzincka, for lunch.  Bob told some great stories about cartoons which never were printed in The New Yorker.  I had just been talking about cartooning, censorship, and “drawing the line” with students in Julie’s class so it was interesting to hear what The New Yorker would and wouldn’t accept in a cartoon.
