Scribble finishes No.1 in the voting for best Web political cartoon of 2005 winning the "People's Pick" Dot-Comedy Award at About.com.

"The Daily Scribble is really funny. Editorial cartooning meets high school heckler." Travis F. Smith, Hop Studios

"Pithy, witty, funny and on top of the news. What blogs are to political commentary, the Daily Scribble is to the editorial cartoon. I keep coming back for more."  Joshua Micah Marshall, Talking Points Memo.

"Though Charles Pugsley Fincher would do well to find a stage name, his daily scribbles are nothing to scoff at. Plain and simple, on lined yellow scratch paper, yet they speak volumes." Jacob Wheeler, Utne.com.

Scribble runs in the opinion section of Flak Magazine.

FYI Schedule Notice: I have some new demands in my day job, which is positive. Consequently, I'll occasionally miss doing Scribble. I just wanted to let regular readers know so that if there isn't a new Scribble on any given day, all is well, so do come back. If this works like I think it will, Scribble will be better than ever, and I'll get a bit more of a reward from my day job.

Tension Rises Over Cartoons of Muhammad
Publication Widens In Europe as Protests Grow in Islamic World

PARIS, Feb. 2 -- Protests against European newspapers' publication of cartoons lampooning the prophet Muhammad gained momentum across the Islamic world Thursday as Pakistani schoolchildren burned French and Danish flags and Muslim presidents denounced the drawings. At the same time, more European news organizations printed or broadcast the caricatures, citing a need to defend freedom of expression.

In another day of confrontation between the largely secular nations of Europe and Muslim countries where religion remains a strong force in daily life, Islamic activists threatened more widespread protests and boycotts of European businesses. While some European officials sought to defuse the crisis, many journalists insisted that despite Islamic outrage, religious sensibilities should not result in censorship.

"We would have done exactly the same thing if it had been a pope, rabbi or priest caricature," wrote Editor in Chief Serge Faubert in Thursday's editions of France Soir, one of the newspapers that printed the cartoons.
