Dave Granlund's Editorial Cartoons
National cartoonist Dave Granlund's blog features his take on politics and current events. Dave has been an editorial cartoonist published in daily newspapers since 1977. Born in Ware, Mass., Granlund began drawing cartoons in grade school and at age 16, he was published on the editorial pages of local weekly newspapers. His eight-year enlistment in the USAF included assignments with SAC HQ and with Headquarters Command, where his duties included work as head illustrator for the Presidential Inaugural Subcommittee and providing briefing charts for the White House and support for Air Force One. As part of NATO in Operation Looking Glass with the Airborne Command Post, he was awarded the Joint Service Commendation Medal. Dave's newspaper honors include awards from UPI, New England Press Association, International Association of Business Communicators, The Associated Press and Massachusetts Press Association. His work has been nominated numerous times for the Pulitzer Prize. His pastimes and interests include history, wood carving, antique tractors and Swedish language studies.

RuPaul and Marg Helgenberger | Photo Credits: Logo

When you make as many millions as Marg Helgenberger did during her 12 seasons on CSI, you say yes to projects because they seem fun. So in April, this longtime fan of RuPaul's Drag Race will be a judge on an episode of the Logo hit (Season 5 premieres on January 28). In one competition, the drag queens must make gowns out of candy, a real challenge when you consider I witnessed a licorice dress melt under the hot stage lights. Other judges and special guests this season include Camille Grammer, Juliette Lewis, Kristen Johnston, Paulina Porizkova, Chaz Bono, La Toya Jackson, Celebrity Apprentice's Aubrey O'Day, Knots Landing vet Joan Van Ark, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Wilmer Valderrama and attorney Gloria Allred.



So where does Helgenberger go from here? She's turned down several recurring roles since leaving CSI because, she says, "I was on one of the best procedurals, so the bar was raised pretty high." And while she's hesitant to reprise her role as Catherine to solve a routine crime, the actress says that if the writers came up with something special, she'd welcome a call. "Transferring to the FBI was a big thing for Catherine, so the return would have to be worthy," she adds, suggesting "some international threat that opens Las Vegas up to the world."
