Quote of the Week

Some people pay a compliment as if they were expecting a receipt.

Frank McKinney (Kin) Hubbard (1868-1930)

KH

Midwestern humorist, cartoonist, and writer known best for his political commentary, Hubbard was a high school dropout who said his goal in life was to own a circus. He worked briefly as a silhouette artist and attended art school for a short time before beginning cartoon work for the Indianapolis News.  For 25 years he drew the acclaimed cartoon “Abe Martin of Brown County” which went into syndication and made him nationally known. Will Rogers cited Hubbard as an influence and called him the greatest humorist of his time. Another favorite Kin Hubbard quote: “Now and then an innocent man is sent to the legislature.”
