“As a former journalist (or, rather, recovering journalist), I still retain some sleuthing chops, but I must admit that I have not been able to discover any salient details about Weekly Hubris’s resident single-panel cartoonist, Mark Addison Kershaw. I haunt (a term of art) his Facebook page for clues, though, and have recently inferred that he (or a furry right hand purporting to be his) is left-handed. (See video embedded below.) This explains a lot.”—Elizabeth Boleman-Herring

ATLANTA Georgia—(Weekly Hubris)—May 1, 2021—Editor’s Note: As a former journalist (or, rather, recovering journalist), I still retain some sleuthing chops, but I must admit that I have not been able to discover any salient details about Weekly Hubris’s resident single-panel cartoonist, Mark Addison Kershaw. I haunt (a term of art) his Facebook page for clues, and have recently inferred that he (or a furry right hand purporting to be his) is left-handed (see video embedded above). This explains a lot. However, never having met Kershaw, I am compelled to admit: 1) that that furry, videoed paw may not indeed belong to the cartoonist known as Addison; 2) that Addison may be a collective noun (covering any number of creatures great and small); and/or/even 3) that Addison may exist slightly outside, or inside (Schrödinger-cat-wise) “our” shared dimension of being. (Here, I would insert a Schrödinger smile, if I had one.)

    I absolutely rely on Addison for my monthly fix for quirky videos from the ‘net. But even more, I count on seeing his one-panel comics every day if I can. Although I’m not sure “comics” is the right word . . . maybe “philosophical observations” is more fitting. Love these!

    ‘Philosophical observations’ about our humanness is my goal..hopefully with some thought provoking insight and a little silliness thrown in now and then to keep me from taking myself too seriously.
    I appreciate the compliment Will. Thank you

    He is a wonderful mystery. Such a very private person. I watch for his posts every day. There are no hints there though, as to who dwells beneath, none that can be truly grasped.

    for what it’s worth I am a mystery to myself as well.
    Thank you, Sheila.
