Our own cartoonist, Matt Wuerker, got the nod from the Pulitzer Prize people to be a finalist for this year's Editorial Cartooning Prize. He didn't win, but Matt's work in Lowdown certainly makes him the most, well, populist of the entire crop! Also, a man not afraid of profundity: When he branched into doing cartoons online for website Politico, we wondered if cartoons are really cartoons if you can't stick 'em on the fridge with a magnet. "The Internet is just a bigger, better refrigerator door," said Matt.
