Michael Ramirez: A Special Update 10-03-22
From America's Premier Editorial Cartoonist
Good morning Friends,
As you are aware, Michael has been absent for the past week, and I’m sorry to tell you that he has been very ill (not Covid). I leave it to him to share details but rest assured he is on the mend and should be back at his drawing desk very soon, quite possibly by tomorrow. Mr. Ramirez is probably the hardest working editorial cartoonist on the planet, who literally has taken no real vacation that I know of since I began working with him in 2015. Being a motherly hen sort, I think he works a bit too hard, but…
You may send cheery get-well wishes to email@example.com, and they will be directed to Michael’s personal inbox. He will appreciate them immensely.
Today, as Florida begins to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Ian, I’d like to share one of my favorites, Michael’s hopeful and heartfelt effort dated August 29, 2017, after Hurricane Harvey struck Houston:
As seen on America's News HQ The rescue group known as the "Cajun Navy" has performed hundreds of rescues since Hurricane Harvey flooded the Houston area on Monday.
The Cajun Coast Search and Rescue team, a Louisiana volunteer group is composed of anyone who owns a boat and wants to rescue flood victims. The group formed after Hurricane Katrina devastated Louisiana in 2005.
The rescue group performed rescue operations during the deadly Louisiana flooding last year and also helps people prepare for storms. The group includes around 20 boats, 5 trained K-9 dogs and a military rescue vehicle.
Commander Toney Wade said the hurricane was among the top two weather situations he has ever seen.
