Capsules was originally created in 1962, and written
by a doctor. I read it faithfully as a teenager
in my hometown newspaper in Sequim, Washington.
Little did I know at the time that I would one
day be selected by United Features Syndicate to
take over the feature when the cartoonist retired
at the age of 92.
I write and draw the feature, which appears
daily in newspapers at home and abroad. I had
no idea that my years of nutritional studies
would pay off in such a way.
It’s exciting to get e-mails from all over
the world now... Paraguay, Mexico, Somalia,
as well as the United States and Canada. I got
one yesterday from a student in Bangladesh who
mentioned that he reads Health Capsules everyday
in The Times of India. I would never imagined
this scenario as a kid.
If you work at a newspaper somewhere on the
planet, we would love to add your newspaper
to our growing list. It is translated into the
local language in other countries. Let me know
it you have any questions.
