  • The Orange County Register
  • Edmonton Sun
  • The Topeka Capital-Journal
  • The Los Angeles Daily News
You can also find his single-panel cartoons regularly in SkyWest's United Express and American Traveler magazines.
He may have also made you laugh in person, as he speaks at many events, including the 2007 World Dairy Expo. This year, you'll find him at the Cattle Industry Annual Convention and NCBA Trade Show, Jan. 28-31 in Phoenix, Ariz., and the World Ag Expo, Feb. 10-12 in Tulare, Calif.
Yep, Leigh Rubin is a pro at making people laugh. His syndicated cartoons, Rubes, have been appearing in newspapers since 1984 and books since 1988.
