Iowa Farmer Cartoonist Returns to Paper That Fired Him

An Iowa farmer’s illustrated cartoons are back in the publication that fired him earlier this year — and he says he’s happy to be back.

Rick Friday penned the “It’s Friday” editorial cartoons in Fort Dodge’s weekly Farm News until he was fired in May after illustrating a cartoon that bemoaned Iowa farmers’ dwindling profits while CEOs at large agricultural corporations earn millions of dollars. A company affiliated with one of three large corporations mentioned in his cartoon reportedly complained, pulling its advertising from the publication.
