Note to Sparky’s Listers

If you’re on Gmail, you might want to add TMWsubscribersATgmailDOTcom to your contacts list. I think Google must have tightened up their filters recently — my own copy of the email ended up in my spam folder last week!

I’d also recommend creating a filter (under the MORE dropdown menu) and checking the NEVER SEND TO SPAM option.

If you do find Sparky’s List emails in your spam folder, please be sure to click the little “not spam” button at the top. Maybe if that happens enough times, the Google algorithms will adjust accordingly.

And if I have any loyal readers who happen to work at Google, please shoot me an email at tomtomorrow-at-gmail. Sparky’s List should not be getting flagged as spam for anybody –it’s a subscription list that people pay money to be on!

…adding: the List has gone out for this week.

Also have been inundated in tweets and emails from all of you. Thank you!

Crazy couple of days, to say the least.

adding: also this, at Big Think.

Herblock prize

I’m immensely honored to announce that This Modern World has won the 2013 Herblock Prize.

WASHINGTON, DC, February 25, 2013 – Dan Perkins, pen name Tom Tomorrow, was named the winner of the 2013 Herblock Prize for editorial cartooning.

Perkins is the creator of the weekly political cartoon, This Modern World, which appears in approximately 80 papers, mostly altweeklies. He is the editor of the comics section he created in April 2011 on Daily Kos. His cartoons have been featured in The New York Times, The New Yorker, U.S. News & World Report and The Economist. He lives outside of New Haven, Connecticut with his wife and their son.

The prize is awarded annually by The Herb Block Foundation for “distinguished examples of editorial cartooning that exemplify the courageous independent standard set by Herblock.” The winner receives a $15,000 after-tax cash prize and a sterling silver Tiffany trophy. Perkins will receive the prize April 25th in a ceremony held at the Library of Congress.

Jack Ohman, the editorial cartoonist for The Sacramento Bee, was named this year’s finalist and will receive a $5,000 after-tax cash prize.

Gwen Ifill, moderator and managing editor of “Washington Week” and senior correspondent for “The PBS Newshour,” will deliver the annual Herblock Lecture at the awards ceremony. Previous speakers have included Ben Bradlee, then-Senator Barack Obama, Sandra Day O’Connor, Tom Brokaw, Tim Russert, Ted Koppel, George Stevens Jr., Jim Lehrer and Garry Trudeau.
