Lee Judge is still working out of his office at The Kansas City Star.

Two weeks ago on KC Currents, we talked about some of the recent layoffs at the Kansas City Star. One of the people who had lost his job was editorial cartoonist Lee Judge, who had been at the newspaper for 27 years.By Sylvia Maria Gross


Kansas City, MO – Lee Judge spoke to KC Currents' Sylvia Maria Gross about how he got into political cartoons in the first place.

Although his full-time position at the Kansas City Star has been eliminated, Judge is working out an agreement to continue drawing cartoons for the paper. Lee Judge will present "A Look Back: Cartoons We're A Little Afraid to Show You" - outtakes from his career at the Star, at the Central Branch of the Kansas City Public Library on Tuesday evening. You can check out some of his recent cartoons for the Star here.
