OK, Wisconsinites, this blogâ€™s for you.
Regular readers of our little cartoon blog will recognize Spot the Frog creator, and all around great guy, Mark Heath as a regular commenter. (BTW, check out Markâ€™s Frog Blog too!)
Iâ€™m a big fan of Spot. Itâ€™s a rare gem of a strip that combines laugh out loud funny with a sort of philosophical sweetness not seen since Calvin and Hobbes. But thereâ€™s a problemâ€¦
Readers of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel can no longer spot Spot. The editors there have dropped the strip. This is where you cheeseheads come inâ€¦
Please please please drop the Sentinalâ€™s editors a line and ask for Spotâ€™s return! Donâ€™t settle for lesser comics. To paraphrase early Beastie Boys, youâ€™ve got to fight for your right to laugh hearty!
Editors hate getting mail about comics. Itâ€™s not their favorite section of the paper and theyâ€™d prefer it just hum along quietly. So, when readers speak up, theyâ€™re usually quick to make changes so they can get back to runaway brides and such.
Save Spot! Write now!

Mark, I can't thank you enough for mentioning this (even providing the email address.) This is akin to lending a hand when someone trips on a curb. Many thanks.
