Congrats to Oak Park's winners in the Chicago Reader's annual Best of Chicago survey. Charlie Meyerson's Chicago Public Square (CPS) was voted Best Blog. Keith Taylor,who may pen the best Trump cartoons anywhere (his work is currently on display at the main library and seen daily in CPS), was named a finalist in the Best Comics Illustrator category. And Oak Park ranked second to Evanston as best suburb — again.

Meyerson describes Taylor, a longtime member of the Oak Park Art League and a former president of that organization, as "the irrepressible (and believe me, I've tried) cartoonist who sends me far more breaking-news cartoons than I can cram into Chicago Public Square." Those cartoons are positively therapeutic.

The honors for Public Square are well-deserved. We will continue to quibble with Evanston over best suburb.

This story has been changed. Keith Taylor was a finalist in the Best Comics Illustrator category, not the winner.
