Inquirer readers have always appreciated Tony’s artistry, witand perspective, but I doubt if they know how invaluable hewas in shaping the daily editorials, too. Countless times, heinspired writers like me with the spark of an idea. He has been a consistent voice for justice and speaking truth topower. I have never worked with a more generous colleague.After I moved on, I sorely missed the sight of Tony walkinginto my office in the morning with a rough sketch of another masterpiece in his hands and a mischievous gleamin his eyes. Tony, enjoy your new gig and keep making usproud. Congratulations.

Gosh. Wish Tony all the best - but what a loss. Who couldforget my all- time favorite: The Evil of Two Lessers?

The Inquirer is losing a class act. I will miss yourintelligence and wit. It was so much fun to see your firstdrafts in the morning. I look forward to seeing what kind of work your new life inspires.

I have had the honor of being on editorial boards with twoof America’s foremost political cartoonists in Kevin “KAL”Kallaugher at the Baltimore Sun and Tony Auth at TheInquirer, two proud papers that have seen better times.Your work has been inspirational to thousands, Tony.But as much as our readers are going to miss seeing yourregular contributions in The Inquirer, I’m going to miss yourinsightful observations and camaraderie on a daily basiseven more. God bless
Harold Jackson
Like every reporter here, I have someAuth cartoons tacked to my bulletin board. Who hasn’t opened the editorialpages and said, ‘Damn, he did it betterin a cartoon than I did in thousands of words!’ Honored to have worked with youTony.

Yo, Tony, Your clarity of view andpungency of comment have enhancedThe Inquirer, yes, but also those of us who had the honor of calling you“colleague” and “friend.” Best wishes on your new venture.

Tony, it has been my great honor to be pitied, hated andprayed for by the same readers who pity, hate and pray foryou. I will so miss seeing you in the newsroom but, if ourcritics are correct, we shall meet again at the fiery gates.

Tony, Congratulations on an illustrious career at theInquirer. You and your work will be greatly missed. I amhonored for the opportunity to serve with you on theEditorial board for four years. You were always one of thehighlights of my day. Thank you for sharing your wit andwisdom and always encouraging me to strive for greaterheights. I will miss you my friend, especially your greathugs! Enjoy the ride in the next chapter! All the best!

Tony, I was a big fan of your art, wit and intellect before Iever came to Philadelphia, and will be one wherever yourpen rests. May you long continue to enliven and enlightenour civic conversations.
Carolyn Davis 
Good luck, Tony: In my opinion, you epitomize journalisticexcellence. Your cartoons — from Watergate to policeviolence in the days of Frank Rizzo to the MOVE bombing,Vince Fumo’s corruption trial and the great Phillies andFlyers teams — will always symbolize the history of ournation and our city. I wish you good health, happiness andfulfillment in the next chapter of your life and career. Allthe best. (One footnote: My office, here in Arizona, has atleast five of your cartoons — framed to preserve them —spanning the years of your work at The Inquirer. They beginin the Rizzo era and end with the corruption trial of VinceFumo. Thanks very much for the delight and insight you’veprovided to thousands of readers. I know you’ll continue todo so in your new job.)

It was a privilege to be one of Tony’s“unindicted co-conspirators” for 10years on the Editorial Board. Manypeople don’t realize Tony’s vitalcontribution beyond cartooning.His questions, indignation, outrage,humor, sadness, admirationresonate through the editorials andcommentary written by his colleagues.There were disagreements, sure, butin the end, Tony always made usthink. Thank you, my friend.

Tony, I will miss you in the newsroom, but you arecontemplating a great new gig. And I know we will see yourwork elsewhere! I first met you when you shared a housewith Don Drake and Pat McBroom. Yikes!

True story: In early 1990s, I traveled to Bermuda for a bikerace. The race organizers arranged for us to stay in localhomes. Lisa and I were taken in by a local attorney and hiswife. We were put in the bedroom of a son who had grownand moved on. It turned out the son was an aficionadoof editorial cartoons. Imagine our surprise to discover anextensive collection of Tony’s work, given pride of place.It made it clear, if it wasn’t already, that Tony was a starwell beyond our region. What a delight to have worked withyou, Tony. What a pleasure to be able to tell others we werecolleagues.
Chris Hepp 
Tony, congrats on a great career. The Inquirer won’t be thesame without you.
Benjamin Yerby Lowe 
Like the rest of Philadelphia, I’ll miss Tony in the Inky. But,apparently, like a lot of other Philly journos — I fortunatelyhave a piece of Tony on my office wall at home … Anamazing cartoon he did that ran with a series I wrote aboutthe takeover of Camden. His drawing said it more sharplythan my thousands of words ever could have.
