Yeah, this really was one of the things my dad used to say. But he was usually right — a lot of the time he was the smartest person in the room! And he should have been... he spent most of his life in school. He taught elementary school for his entire career and spent many years teaching night school. And he hardly ever missed an episode of Jeopardy!
He touched a lot of lives and was a lifelong learner. Here's to you, dad — the smartest guy in the room!
I've been cartooning since I was a teenager, and have been published in magazines ranging from AASHTO Quarterly to the LDS Church magazines and several other periodicals, trade publications and newsletters.
