Lost Cartoonists

How about a quick check on the state of cartooning in the U.S.? A list (in no particular order) of staff cartoonists that have been fired/laid off/bought out in the past twelve months...

Richard Crowson, Wichita Eagle
Peter Dunlap-Shohl, Anchorage Daily News
Chip Bok, Akron Beacon-Journal
Brian Duffy, Des Moines Register
Stuart Carlson, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Jim Borgman, Cincinnati Enquirer
Rob Tornoe, Politicker.com
Lee Judge, Kansas City Star
Jim Lange, Oklahoman
Don Wright, Palm Beach Post
Stuart Carlson, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Dwane Powell, The News Observer
Dick Adair, The Honolulu Advertiser
David Catrow, Springfield News-Sun
Jake Fuller, Gainesville Sun
Dave Granlund, MetroWest Daily News
Steve Greenberg, Ventura County Star
Eric Devericks, Seattle Times

It's also worth noting that Rocky Mountain News and Seattle Post-Intelligencer don't look to be around much longer, which would put Ed Stein, Drew Litton, and David Horsey in the unemployment line.
