Don Asmussen

About The Author

 Don Asmussen was born in Rhode Island, a state so small that he didn't fit. So began a long journey through newspapers that included the Portland Press Herald, Detroit News, and San Diego Tribune. In 1997, he landed at the San Francisco Chronicle to write The San Francisco Comic Strip, a cartoon that trashed everyone but Don himself (he's sensitive to self-criticism). He also did a three-year stint as a Time magazine cartoonist. In 2003, he merged his cartooning craft with his bent for politics to create, Bad Reporter.
