George H.W. Bush, 1924-2018
I drew this many years ago, while I was still with The Houston Chronicle. I alerted the new Editorial Page Editor of its existence, and they are running it full-page tomorrow. I created it on their time, so I felt obligated to give them the choice of running it, even though I no longer work there. They've posted it online here (although it's pretty hard to read that small). No matter which party you identify with, I think you have to agree that George H.W. Bush led an extraordinary life, and was a class act. He was willing to cross party lines for the good of the country. Unfortunately, that kind of compromise seems out of fashion these days.
