Exactly 6 months after I finished and mailed this cartoon, it appears in this day's Wall Street Journal. I thought for sure I missed it entirely. But, when I was peeking at Journal's last page today, at the Hoyt/Schermerhorn A Train Station newsstand, expecting to see a Caldwell or a Schwadron or a Carpenter, I saw ... a LYNCH! That was fun. I much prefer the earlier version (below) where the woman is implicitly giving the fellow a swat on the behind to propel him into his day. I toned it down for the final version (above).
