RS Janes 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ye Olde Scribe @ 9:24 am

YOS has been busy, and admittedly not thinking about Bart Blog when it came to this sad news. THIS was a major miss on his part, and he apologies. RS was a frequent contributor here, and once a friend of Scribe. For those who missed the news…

Many people here will remember RS Janes and will even come across a lot of his work from when he was an intricate part of the several previous websites that this one eventually morphed into.

From the original Political Pulpit, to the Political Puzzle, to Liberaltopia, and LT Saloon, Rick was a regular fixture on these sites and continued to be so on several others.  The author of the Tattlesnake entries here as well as many cartoons, he always found a way to entertain while giving us a message.

Rick passed away the other day from cancer.  His wife Val, says that then end was quick and fairly pain-free.  She posts a memorial on Rick’s personal blog,

He will be missed by all who have known him.


  1. So sorry to hear this. And thanks so much for letting us know. He was the best!

    It’s scary when we lose another truth-speaker from our little band of writers and fact-checkers who keep our fingers in the dike of trying to keep the world from being overwhelmed with the flood of right-wing propaganda.

    Thank goodness for BartCop!

  2. Oh dear, I somehow missed this post until now. I am sorry to hear this news. Rick’s graphics were a great contribution to this blog and he always had nice things to say about my work. He will be sorely missed. To anyone who knows Rick, I offer my utmost condolences. RIP.
