Cartoonists should not die for what they draw. So says editorial cartoonist and writer Jack Ohman. After another attack on cartoonists in Texas this weekend, the award-winning Sacramento Bee political cartoonist – and many others in his profession – have found themselves once again in the middle of a debate on free speech and expression. As Ohman prepares for this year’s annual political cartoonist convention, we talk with him and Houston Chronicle editorial cartoonist Nick Anderson about issues of safety and what the First Amendment means to them.

  • Nick Anderson, Houston Chronicle editorial cartoonist often seen in the Sacramento Bee’s editorial pages.
