Title: The shuttle Columbia
Published: Ventura County Star
Date: Feb.4, 2003
About this cartoon: This was basically just a reaction cartoon following the shuttle Columbia's disintegration during reentry, which killed the crew of seven just 15 minutes before landing.
Noteworthy: The reaction to this was phenomenal, for me, perhaps the most of my career. Many, many emails, both from Ventura County Star readers, distant readers of other Scripps Howard newspapers (which reprinted it) and people who saw it online. The reaction was nearly all positive, and many people wrote to say it moved them to tears.
