Rob Rogers, Pittsburgh's star editorial cartoonist, was recently named Cartoonist of the Year in the seventh annual Opinion Award adjudication by The Week Magazine. The accolade, however richly deserved, is just another instance of opinion in a universe of interminable opinion, but it is beyond debate that, for many years, Rogers was the profession's most eligible bachelor. He finally got married a few years ago to a beautiful and intelligent woman; and now, in the same spirit of consummation prolonged until perfection could be attained, he has produced one of the best editorial cartoon books ever. Entitled No Cartoon Left Behind: The Best of Rob Rogers (390 10x12-inch pages, black-and-white with some color; paperback, Carnegie Mellon, $39.95), the book is a wide-ranging retrospective of the cartoonist's 25-year stint at the a newspaper that was once the Pittsburgh Press and is now the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
