An anthology of cartoons and articles by nationally known editorial cartoonist and writer Henry Payne covering two of America's most historically significant years, from Election 2000 to the tragic events of 9/11. In 1999, Henry Payne joined the editorial page of the Detroit News, and for the next two years--spanning the disputed presidential election of 2000 through the tumultuous events of September 11, 2001--his cartoons and articles filled the pages of newspapers and magazines across America. The work of this nationally syndicated cartoonist and widely published writer has appeared in over 100 U.S. publications, including the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, National Review, and Weekly Standard. Despite Payne's national reputation, his work is born out of Detroit, a city at the hub of America's regulatory, education, and election debates. Payne & Ink is filled with visually brilliant satire--from cartoons of the cerebral VP candidates, Joe Leiberman and Dick Cheney, picking up their children Dubya and Al from the nursery, to Detroiters confronting the horror of road construction season in "Attack of the Orange Barrels." Accompanying the drawings is Payne's incisive political reporting, addressing such issues as the auto industry's struggle to meet Washington's demand for fuel-efficient cars while customers demand gas-guzzling SUVs, the plight of inner city Detroit's crumbling public schools, and Michigan's orderly recount of its closest Congressional election in the face of the chaos in Florida. Featuring an introduction by columnist Tom Bray of the Wall Street Journal and Detroit News, this fascinating collection of caricature and cleareyed analysis captures twenty-four monthsof American headlines.
