Cartoons, cartoons, cartoons.... John Crowther's Cartoon Odyssey

I think of it as The Fool's Journey. I've been asked who the "fool" is. It's me, but in the classical sense of the court jester. Only the fool was allowed to tell the king of his follies. All cartoons are available as prints or originals, framed or unframed, through my website or e-mail. For mugs, t-shirts, and other products visit my gift shop at* (be sure to include the *).

Fly the Fiendly Skies

One of my favorite airplane stories - it's true, you can't make this stuff up - was told on herself by a well-known feminist who was in demand for speaking engagements around the country. She had a terror of flying, and so took a course to help her overcome it. It was suggested to her that on her first flight after "graduation" she asked to be introduced to the pilot, in order to put a human face to the man who would hold her life in his hands. She did, except that the man turned out to be a woman, and the feminist burst out crying.

Both extraordinary stories John... and a great cartoon! Seems inconceivable doesn't it that those pilots could fly on oblivious to the situation. I wonder what the real story is?
