HR Strange But True!
June 14, 2001

The New York Press, an alternative weekly, seems to have come up with a novel way to unload talent.

The newspaper recently told cartoonist Kaz that his strip "Underworld" would no longer grace its pages. Why? According to Kaz, Press CEO Russ Smith explained that no writer worked for the Press for more than 10 years. It was a rule.

"This was the first time I ever heard of this rule," Kaz told the Comics Journal. "I never heard anything about it until I got dumped."

"If cartoonists were better at math," the Journal observed, "Kaz might have been even more skeptical, since his strip had started at the Press about eight years ago and by rights should have had a couple of years to go."

Moreover, the Journal added, the New York Press only started up in 1988, so "it would only recently have had a chance to start implementing this long-standing tradition."
