Today's crankiness  
The Web is full of cartoonists who should have competent people draw for them, just as Leonard Cohen's songs should be sung by actual singers, and someone should novelize Frank Herbert.

Along the same lines, I've been wondering for weeks how much better I would like Bruce Springsteen (and his fans) if he had ever hired someone who could sing to perform with his band.

Snarky! Snarky talk man!

For Leonard Cohen, read also, and even more emphatically, Bob Dylan.

There are a few newspaper comic strips whose original artists hired someone else to draw for them, but I recall that I often preferred the original artist.

I blame Dylan for Cohen: He wrote it, you gotta let him sing it. Bad idea.

I feel there are an equal number of amazingly skilled online cartoonists who should never post anything they wrote themselves.

Quite possibly. I am more likely to notice the others.

Frank Herbert was just fine until he found himself knee-deep in money cranking out sausage.
Pocket Lint of Dune, the must-have sequel to Grocery List of Dune!

I disagree. I thought Destination: Void and The Eyes of Heisenberg should have been turned over to a prose stylist, while I manfully slogged through Dune.
