Extremely well-deserved, I would say.

I think he's talking about that dumbass who wrote the letter to the editor of The Times one year (when it was still readable) when you beat him out for an editorial cartoon award. You remember the guy -- he kept referring to himself in the third person.

Wow, how cool is all that. Congratulations.
I will alert my readers.
As well as Mr. Coats.
(that press release was a bit of a bear to get through though)

Wow. Mel has an even stupider site than mine. Dammit, why is someone always lowering the bar?


...I printed out and hung your Yeatsy Snake Oil on my office wall, where it covers the insipid cartoons on the "Far Side" Calendar I got for Xmas. 'sdelightful.

Yeah, I forgot his name, sorry. I just remember his name was all Neworleansy.

And he was a fag with a hat.

Ah, you mean THAT Mel LeCompte?

Mel LeCompte, the elementary teacher, who in his two years working spare time for the Daily World racked up an Associated Press regional award and FOUR Louisiana Press awards? More than other journalists work their lives away full time trying to accomplish?

Mel LeCompte, the guy who wrote a sports column that turned into a national feature for ESPN and NFL Films?

Mel LeCompte, the guy that got booted and blacklisted from Gannett for 'controversy' (i.e. not being a corporate lapdog)?

Mel LeCompte, the guy who's style is still immitated by the sorry staff at the Advertiser ('The Brady' awards vs. 'The Melvins'?)

Mel LeCompte, the guy who accomplished in two years in his free time what journalists work their butts off for years for?

The Mel LeCompte that people still phone the Daily World for, requesting him to come back four years after he was canned?

The Mel LeCompte that apparently still ticks you off at the mere mention of his name, four years later?

The Mel LeCompte that is now a musician hitting stages in Baton Rouge and Lafayette? The Mel LeCompte that is now into politics (president of his local teacher's union)?

Just checking.

(Not Mel LeCompte, just a friend of his)
