How do I go about getting a personalized, signed copy of your newest Fried Chicken and Wine book? I know I can pick up a signed copy from Lemuria, but I’d like to have one personalized for my mother for Christmas.
We love your work!
If you get one at Lemuria, you can request to have it personalized and I will do it the next time I’m in the store.
We loved your cartoon in memory of Tim Ford and were curious if we could purchase the original to give to his son. Tim was a good friend and his son is a good friend of our daughter.
Marshall, your comments under the cartoon this morning about Zig was great. How do I get a copy of your cartoon on the 7th anniversary of Katrina, with the lighthouse? I want to frame it to send to my brother in law in Biloxi.
Marshall, I’d like 22 (sic) of your books per our conservation the other day. How do I accomplish that?
I e-mailed you! Thank you.
After listening to you talk about Zig Ziglar yesterday, I wanted to tell you my story of meeting Mr Ziglar. Growing up I often heard my Father talk of his friends. He grew up in the illustrious town of Yazoo City. One day when I was around 6 the front door bell rang. This was really strange because no one came to the front door. Imagine my surprise when I opened the door to see this tall stranger with his hand extended. Being the proper young lady that I was I knew to stuck my hand out as a greeting to this odd fellow. He placed something in my hand. He told me that I was now a proud owner of a “round to it”. Zig Somebody is here, I shouted as I ran off. He did, however, impress my teenage brother as he took us for a ride in his Bentley.
Lots of requests in Greenwood. How can we sell the book?
Thanks, Jamie @ Turnrow
I would love to purchase a copy of your Zig cartoon and frame it. Is that possible?
Thank you for the Zig article in today’s paper. It moved me. I hope it moves others who may be struggling; it is possible to come out on the other side. Thanks for reminding me to always reach: whether it is down to pull someone up, out to encourage others; and up to aspire to be the best one can be. You Rock Marshall! Your neighbor, Laurie
Your cartoons always make my day! The only thing better is your short stories.
I would love for you to come to Starkville and sign copies of your latest book. Any chance this could happen? We have had so many of our customers requesting you and your book. Please let me know if this is a possibility.

Are there any more book signings planned for the Jackson area besides the one tonight at Lemuria ?
Your radio talk program in the afternoon was informtive & enjoyable.
Lately you are not there ?
Have you got promoted to TV perhaps, on extended vacation or some announcement
that I missed?
ps I like your cartoons also–ref. in CL
Thanks for a reply
No, I was fired. They cancelled the show. Thanks for listening.
This makes me sad. I looked forward to hearing from you every day!
They should never have cancelled you. I was a constant listener. Now I change the station.
I MISS YOUR RADIO SHOW!!!!!!! IT WAS COOL!!!! THE ONLY ONE THEY HAVE ON NOW THAT I LIKE IS LARGE LAWSON.
Could you tell me the name of the Christmas book you illustrated and where I can find it?
Thank you !
There are two: The Best Christmas Ever by Dave Ramsey (daveramsey.com) and Santa’s Wish by Santa. (http://www.circle504records.com/)
The Greater Jackson Chamber has a professional women’s group that meets each month – WIN – Women’s Information Network. We wanted to know if you would be willing to speak at our February 26th meeting – 12:00 Noon.

Did you ever get the name of the book written by a weather man, that you interviewed? Thanks
It’s Raining Fish & Spiders” By Bill Evans
IT’S SAD THAT SOMEONE CAN WALK IN SOMEWHERE AND START SHOOTING CHILDERN AND ADULTS. OUR COUNTRY DON’T NEED NEW GUN LAWS JUST SMARTER PEOPLE USEING GUNS. GUNS IS A TOOL–IT IS USE FOR HUNTING, SELF-DEFENCE, AND TARGET PRACTICE ON PAPER TARGETS AND TIN CANS.
LIKE EVERY MASS SHOOTING IT IS REALLY SAD. I heard that most all mass shooting happens at gun-free envirnment or gun-ban.
p.s. i miss your radio show.
Where can I order a copy of Fried Chicken and Wine?
Can you please email me a publisher contact for your book? I would like to buy stock to sell in local Books-A-Million stores.
I WOULD LIKE TO SELL YOUR BOOK FRIED CHICKEN AND RICE IN MY BOOKSTORE-COTTON ROW BOOKSTORE, 333 COTTON ROW, CLEVELAND, MS 38732—EMAIL (email@example.com). would you let me know how to order?
Yearly, our chamber joins forces with our community college and offers a great lunch and learn event, and I’d love to talk to you about coming this year as our speaker. Is this a possibility? Our date is set for late March so I look forward to hearing from you soon. I have my hopes up and fingers crossed.
By the way…I picked up your book at Mistletoe Marketplace as a present for my husband. He really enjoyed it…and now it’s my turn!
Marshall – My girlfriend is a big fan, and I wanted to get her a personalized copy of your new book before her birthday this weekend. Would that be possible?
Tru Lemuria. If you get it this morning, I can stop by this afternoon and personalize it.
Thanks, Marshall. The book is purchased and waiting at Lemuria. I really appreciate it.
I am reading aloud your book “Fried Chicken and Wine” as a gift for my mother. I just wanted to let you know in case you don’t already that there are many little typographical errors in the text. I’m enjoying the stories and I will continue with my project, but I invariably have to fill in an article or word here and there to make the sentence make sense. If I planned on keeping this signed copy of the book for myself, I would have highlighted the errors and noted them for you but I plan on sending the book on with the recording. Just one example from the chapter I just read. On page 113, line 7 it reads “David limped the plane over a nearby hangar…” Since the plane was already on the ground, I assume that this was supposed to read “over to a nearby hangar”. This type of error occurs multiple times in most chapters. This is a very minor issue when reading to yourself, but it really trips up someone reading aloud. Please take this information just as it is, information, and not a criticism of the work. I just thought if there comes a time for a second printing or a sequel, a close inspection of the text would be warranted. Thanks for all you do and the good thoughts you provide for us in your cartoons, radio and writings.
I absolutely love your book “Fried Chicken and Wine”. I received a signed copy as a Christmas gift. I really miss your show on the drive home – some folks in the radio business just don’t know good when they’ve got it. I hope that you continue your writing and publish another book very soon.
Marshall, I just ordered your book through Dave’s website (the 48 hour special – I am frugal!!). Are those shipped from him or are you shipping them? The reason I ask is if you are sending it, could you possibly autograph it? I understand if you left some with his organization to be shipped from there. Just thought I would ask. If you should see one coming to Lucedale to Mr. H*****, that would be my Mr. H.
Would it be possible to get a print of one of your ANG C-17 works? I think you did one on their initial arrival and then another of the MS Capital fly over. Would prefer to email the conversation if possible.
I’ll e-mail you today.
Thanks, I look forward to finding out about them.
Hey there…any chance of purchasing one of the C-17 ‘toons…haven’t got a message yet.
Who can I order your book from? I live in NY and no one her seems to carry it.
http://www.lemuriabooks.com THank you!
The Pierce Allan Helms Memorial Silent Auction is raising money for the Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital Congenital Heart Program. Would you consider donating a signed book to the auction? The auction is approved and supported by Batson Children’s Hospital. We have raised nearly $10,000 in the last two years to help Mississippi’s heart kids, and hope to raise even more this year. Please visit our page and consider donating to help provide better services and a new expansion of Batson Children’s Hospital for Mississippi’s heart kids. My five year old daughter, Caylen, was born with heterotaxy including 14 heart defects, multiple spleens and many other health issues. Batson Children’s Hospital and its doctors, nurses and staff have been instrumental in keeping our daughter alive and growing. When you donate, your donation will not only be listed in the auction, but a link to your Facebook page and website will be included, and you will be listed on the Thank You page. We would be happy to pick up your donation, too, and will provide a donation form with the 501(c)3 tax-ID number for your records. We would appreciate any help you could give us to help the Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital Congenital Heart Program!
Mr. Ramsey — I have followed you for so long, love your editorial cartoons, your work with the cancer groups and your bent toward fitness.
I am the PR/Media Chair for the MS Walks in MS for the MS/AL Chapter of the National MS Society.
We would be so thrilled and honored to have a signed book to give away or a cartoon drawn for us — we’d just be beside ourselves!
I can have our NMSS Walk Chair contact you if need be but I’d love to work on this with you if at all possible.
Thank you so much for your time.
Good morning! My name is Michelle Nicholson and I am the Greenville Rotary program chair for first quarter of this year! Our president sent me an email saying that he saw that you recently spoke at the Jackson Rotary club, and wanted me to contact you! I think you would make an awesome speaker/program. We meet every Thursday at noon at the Greenville Country Club. The following are the days we have open…

My name is Jeremy Lindsey, and I am a senior at Provine High School in Jackson, MS. I am currently enrolled in senior advanced seminar and part of the requirement for the completion of the course is that I complete a portfolio. In addition to making a product, I have to have 15 hours of mentoring by someone who works in the field that I’ve chosen. I have several questions about the creation of cartoons and how they are used. Because of your experience with cartoons, I believe you would be the best person to mentor me. Will you please consider being my mentor?
There are several typos and misleading text. I like the book but I expected more from you.
Thank you for mentioning the typos. THe book will be re-edited for the second printing. Not sure what you mean by “misleading text” but I’m sure that will be corrected as well. As for you expecting more from me, I’m sorry you are so disappointed. I guess I’ll have to find the strength to go on. Thanks for writing.
Hello, Mr. Ramsey. My name is Jeremy Lindsey. You still have not answered my question? You’ve answered someone else’s posted comment, but I is still have no answer from you. It’s fine, but to save me some time, could you please read my last comment which I posted January 24th, 2013. Again, my name is Jeremy Lindsey, and I am willing to know what you think about my question. Thank you so much.
Jeremy, I haven’t answered you because I haven’t decided whether or not I can take you on as a shadow. I am looking at my schedule today or tomorrow for the next two months. I am a part-time employee now and barely have time to do the work I am asked to do. I’d love to help you out someway but would ask you please respect the fact that if I haven’t answered you, it is for a good reason.
Oh it’s okay! I respect you. After all, you seemed pretty busy anyway. I do apologize for for that. I understand that you have a lot of important things going on. I shouldn’t be impatient. Please forgive me.
Happy New Year and Congratulations on your incredible book; Fried Chicken and Wine!
Can you send us two dozen more – we’re SOLD OUT!
How is your new book coming along? Please come sign with us when it’s released. Starkville LOVES MARSHALL RAMSEY!!
Northpark Mall would like to talk with you about participation or sponsorhsip of our Kidgits (Kids)Club Book Blast event on Saturday, February 16, 2013 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Please call Gia Maloney at 601-956-3438 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks in adavnce for your response.
Is there a way to get a print of your recent USM Ogle Tree House cartoon?
Dear Mr.Ramsey, my name is Eve and I heard about you on Dave Ramsey. I am eleven years old and am a writer. I have written several books and want to get them published. I was wondering if you could give me some advice on publishing my books or what I need to do next.
Hi – can I purchase the USM Alumni House cartoon from you? I lived in that house as a child.
PS – the “Store” link on this website doesn’t work.
Do you have an archive of your past cartoons? I’m looking specifically for one from 2002 or 2003. Thank you!
Sorry. There is no archive. The Clarion-Ledger doesn’t archive my work.
I have some questions about your upcoming 5K and would like for you to contact me at the included email address. Thanks!
Recently finsihed your Fried Chicken & Wine book. Although I enjoyed the stories, I was disappointed in the profanity that was splattered throughout the book. Had I known that was your writing style, I would not have purchased the book.
Sorry you were so offended. The profanity was very, very limited and light and only used in a place where a gosh or shucks would not work.
You may already be aware of this, but there are typos or wrong words on 19 pages of Fried Chicken & Wine. I do editing at work, so I couldn’t help but notice the mistakes as I read the book. Would be glad to share them with you if you wish.
Since you are so easily offended by my profanity, I have decided to have it re-proofread by another proofreader who is not offended by the word Hell. Thanks for your kind offer, though.
Thank you for speaking at the Welcome Neighbor Luncheon today. You were so delightfully entertaining, funny, inspiring and encouraging. It was awesome for us to get to know you up close and hear about your first job as a college graduate, how you met your wife, see lots of your cartoons and hear about trials you have overcome. What an inspiring speaker you are and you are funny too!
Thank you for taking the time to share at our meeting and we look forward to reading your book Fried Chicken and Wine. Also, thank you for loving Mississippi and staying here with your family and doing life. We know you could be anywhere you want to be, yet you choose to stay in Mississippi. How blessed we are! Keep up the awesome work! Thanks again! Judy Watts, programs WNC
Was looking at your cartoons on cagle.com. Great stuff. Love your humor and drawing style. Your an inspiration.
Hi Marshall – I’m interested in licensing a comic for a short run of mugs (~150) to use for staff party favors. Would you email me?
We would like to use your editorial cartoon for Starkville and West Point. Can you let us know the cost
Don Norman, Publisher
I would like to talk to you regarding using some of your cartoons on a social media site for a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Could you e-mail me? Thank You!!
We would like to use one of your editorial cartoons for a Social Studies Assessment. Can you let us know the cost
Marshall, Hi! I’m Peggy Welch. I’m originally from Clinton, but I now live in Bloomington, Indiana. My brother-in-law, Gray Swoope, turned me on to follow your tweets. They make me smile or just laugh out loud.
I get Garrison Keillor’s “Writer’s Almanac” each day, and this was a poem in the March 21st email. I thought of your running early mornings. Hope you enjoy. Blessings, peggy
“Every Day” by Tom Clark, from Light and Shade Every Day
by Thomas A. Clark
Awake the mind’s hopeless so
At a quarter to six I rise
And run 2 or 3 miles in
The pristine air of a dark
And windy winter morning
With a light rain falling
And no sound but the pad
Of my sneakers on the asphalt
And the calls of the owls in
The cypress trees on Mesa Road
And when I get back you’re
Still asleep under the warm covers
Because love is here to stay
It’s another day and we’re both still alive

It’s the birthday of poet Nizar Qabbani (books by this author), born in Damascus, Syria (1923). His mother, who was illiterate, sold her jewelry to raise money to publish his first anthology, Childhood of a Bosom (1948), and he went on to become the most popular Arab poet and to publish more than 20 books of poetry. Much of his poetry was influenced by the tragic deaths of two women he loved. When he was 15, his older sister committed suicide rather than be forced into marriage with a man she did not love, and he turned his attention to the situation of Arab women. He wrote romantic, sensual poems and poetry demonstrating the need for sexual equality and women’s rights. Many years later, in 1981, his second wife, an Iraqi woman, died during the Lebanese Civil War when the Iraqi Embassy was bombed. Qabbani was grief-stricken and frustrated with the political and cultural climate of the Arab world, and he lived in Europe for the rest of his life.
I knew when I said
I love you
that I was inventing a new alphabet
for a city where no one could read
that I was saying my poems
in an empty theater
and pouring my wine
for those who could not
From 3-6 I miss listening to your show.
Our state ABC convention is July 11th-July 14th at the Sandestin Hilton in Destin, Fla. We would be honored if you would consent to be the featured guest speaker at our business man’s breakfast on Friday morning July 12th. You did this for us about three years ago and everyone loved it. We will provide room accomodations for you and family and any other requirements that you might have. We hope you will accept our invitation.
Hi Marshall — I’m writing a story for Prevention magazine on gratitude–particularly feeling thankful when things are going wrong–and came across your blog post on the very topic. Would you be willing to talk to me about your gratitude for the bad stuff for the piece?
Thanks! And I look forward to talking to you.
Hi, Marshall. I’m a local writer (new to Madison), and I’m writing to inquire about the publisher of your new book, Fried Chicken and Wine. Is Tiny Wheels Media LLC your own publishing imprint, or is it an independent small press? I could not find it with a google search. I’m just starting a search for a new book myself.
Please let me know.
Is your store not working?
Noticed on Twitter you were talking about MoH Recipients on Netflix. Have you ever been to the Armed Forces Museum at Camp Shelby? They have a room set aside there for the MoH Recipients from MS. Great exhibit. In fact, the AFM is one of the best kept secrets of the state. If you have never been there….take your family they will all enjoy it. I guarantee it!!!!
I’m going to have to check it out. Thank you.
Marshall, your “when dogs dream” cartoon is quickly making its way around the office. Love it. Do you sell prints of your handiwork?
What is the process of securing you as a guest speaker for a special event on August 2, 2013?
I am researching the Ramsey line. My maiden name was Ramsey. Do you know where your ancestors came from?
I’m Ariss King, one of the co-ordinators for this year’s 9th Annual Jackson Free Press Chick Ball! I am curious if you would be interested in donating an item to the silent auction at our upcoming Chick Ball on July 20th at Hal and Mal’s?
All the money is going to fundraise the fight against sex trafficking here in MS, in conjunction with The Center for Violence Prevention–and since it’s a non-profit organization and event, it’s tax deductible.
Sex trafficking is a very serious and very sad issue that not too many people are aware is a huge problem–especially in MS. We hope to help extinguish this issue and raise awareness through this year’s Chick Ball event and we need as much help as possible.
We were hoping you might want to donate a signed book or signed print—or anything else you might be interested in donating? We’ll take anything for sure! :D
We put all donations in the paper the week of Chick Ball and your name and anything else you might want to include will accompany it on the auction table, so its free advertising as well.
We are also accepting sponsorship monetary donations.
If you need anything else (info, etc.), then I have a flyer and a note from Sandy Middleton (executive director of The Center for Violence Prevention in Pearl, MS) to send.
Let me know if you’d like to participate! We thank you, Mr. Ramsey, for your hard work and for being a legend in Mississippi!!! You are also welcome to attend the event, too, and there is a link below to JFP’s recent article on the matter!
Marshall…it would be awesome for you to draw a cartoon of all the state schools clapping and cheering on Mississippi State. Just a thought! Sincerely, a Southern Miss Alum And Fan
I just finished a book about Jimmy Buffett for Hal Leonard Publishing called “Jimmy Buffett: FAQ: Everything Left to Know About the Mayor of Margaritaville.”
A man by the name of Milton L Brown (he was the one that gave Jimmy his start in Mobile, AL) has given me a lot of help through the process, and just sent me your cartoon on Jimmy and Jimmy Hoffa (Very Funny I might add). Milton just wrote a short “Afterward” to the book, in which he refers to the cartoon.
I’m looking for permission to use the image in my book. Please contact me via email.
PS…I’m also a Melanoma Survivor (2009) – Stay Clean
Wanted to see if I could appear on your new radio show sometime to talk about the Old Capitol Museum? Also would like to invite you to participate in a radio program at the OCM in December. Thanks.
I hope you are doing well! Can I order 12 of your Fried Chicken and Wine? If you have them, it would be great to have you sign them. We had a customer request for one of your cartoons that you did in June during the College World Series. It was the one that had the moon as a baseball. Is there any way we could get that as a picture? We could sell a bunch – State fans are still loving the Omaha experience around here!
Let me know your thoughts. Thanks Marshall,

Was just reading the article on the SHS Humanities Wall of Fame and wanted to take a moment to congratulate you on all of your wonderful work and successes. Great job.
Thank you! And it’s awesome to hear from you. Have had fun following your career for many years.
I would like for you to develop a cartoon showcasing the current health care environment in Mississippi.
Stars are aligning causing major layoffs across the state–
Star 1- Due to extremely high health insurance deductibles, people are not accessing the health care system because they can’t afford it. Health Care Deductibles in the state are as high $1,500, $2,500, and even $5,000. So, many truly only catastrophic coverage.
Star 2-The federal government is continuing to cut reimbursement to hospitals and physicians in the programs of Medicare and Medicaid.
Star 3-Hospitals are writing off more and more in charity care.
Star 4-A slow, uncertain economy. Even those individuals with health insurance with lower deductibles are not accessing health care services because they are holding on to their money.
Star 5-Because residents are not using health care services, hospitals inpatient volumes have plummeted. Inpatient services have always been the greatest source of revenue for hospitals.
Star 6-Mississippi is not expanding Medicaid enrollment. So hospitals will have their reimbursement for Medicaid services cut by CMS, but there are no additional residents being added to the roles. (Note: I can certainly understand why our great governor doesn’t want to expand the Medicaid roles, because the Federal Government is only willing to support the initiative financially early on, and the state will have to figure out funding for expanded Medicaid in future years.)
Star 6-Health care personnel are being laid off at many hospitals across the state.
I have the answer. Mississippi is ranked number 37 in the nation for the amount of tobacco tax paid per pack– .68. Let’s move to number 1 by increasing our tobacco tax to $4.40 per pack (New York is currently number 1 at $4.35 per pack). The money can be used to fund the Medicaid program and other community health initiatives in the state to reduce our rates of cancer, obesity, teen pregnancy, drug and alcohol abuse, etc. Does anyone agree that this would be a great solution?
I have a question. How much would you charge for a caricature of someone? One of the executives at my company is retiring next year and part of the “retirement celebration” is a golf tournament. I wanted to see how much you would charge to do a caricature of him (with all of his favorite “things” as part of the drawing) that I could use on the tshirt.
And, I may use the caricature on invitations, etc. . . Can you quote me a price? How much for a caricature and the license to use the image on various items surrounding the retirement activities.
Thanks so much!
Need to buy some of your books (ALL) for kademi! Would love for you to come do a signing at the store in Philadelphia!!!!
Is there a place in Oxford, MS selling copies of Banjo’s Dream?
I saw a display, one day last week, BUT CANNOT remember where!
Working on getting it in Square. Hopefully it will be soon.
Hey Marshall, how do I go about ordering a print of a cartoon published in the Clarion Ledger?
I WOULD LIKE TO ORDER 1 BANJO’S DREAM AND 2 FRIED CHICKEN AND WINE TO SELL IN MY STORE–COTTON ROW BOOKSTORE, CLEVELAND, MS. PLEASE CONTACT ME ABOUT THE DISCOUNT AND S&H.
COTTON ROW BOOKSTORE
Hope your day is starting off well. I’m the Vice President of the Wesson Chamber of Commerce. You spoke to our annual banquet a few years ago and we were interested to see if you’d like to come back. Are you available either Tuesday, January 28th or Thursday, January 30th? You are welcome to phone me at 601-695-0209 or email me at email@example.com. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
When subbing for an English teacher today, I saw your article “Along the Buffalo waterfront: A Christmas Tale” at school on the teacher’s desk. It had some corrections marked on it. When I read it, I was moved to add more. I think it is good enough for real publication – like in a group of your short stories. But I see from earlier posts that you have published on paper things that need editing. I personally would volunteer to read over your work before you post it. I am also sure you may be in contact with English teachers, perhaps retired, who could do this for you. Spell and grammar checkers are great, but they are not the same as a human proofreader – at least not yet. I can barely read the newspaper these days because of the errors. Thanks.
I hope you see this soon!! I need 24 more of Banjo’s Dream and another dozen of Fried Chicken and Wine. And we’d love for you to do a signing at Book Mart & Cafe’ soon!
I really appreciate you dropping off your books last week – Starkville can’t get enough of Marshall Ramsey!!
when are ur banjo books going to be in kindle format? I really want to read them
The Children’s book — probably never. Fried Chicken and Wine — within the year.
Marshall, I’d like to order 2 ea of the two Banjo books. How do I do that?
You can find them on Amazon or lemuriabooks.com
Marshall, I ordered 3 books from Lemuria on Dec. 3rd, but they haven’t responded to the order. Can’t reach them by email or phone, they don’t answer and don’t pick up the phone. No voice mail. Don’t know how to cancel the order as I’d like these by Christmas. Do you know how to contact them and get a response so that they will fill the order?
I forwarded your information to the owner.
You stole my idea about the drones flying in Mississippi.LOL I’m from Greene County. My brother-in-law and myself were watching the newscast about the drones. We started talking about how when they would fly those things in Greene Co. It would look like a skeet shoot. Everyone putting money in a pot. Who hits the drone gets the pot.
I enjoy your cartoons and also listened to your radio show, when it was on. You got to love Mississippi. There’s no place like it in the universe.
Keep up the good work.
Don’t worry I won’t take you to court :).
My Name is Kelly Andrews Im the District Clerk for Washington County Soil and Water Conservation District. We are having our Annual Commissioners Banquet on Febuary 18, 2014 in Greenville, MS and would love to have you as our guest speaker. Please contact me by email if you will be available.
My daughter, who is six years old, has a project. She asking a variety of questions to various people with my help. We would like to send it to you in snail mail format, but I don’t know an address to use. I could put the questions in an email or other online format. She’s created a drawing to be sent with it. Might take a bit to scan it if we should submit this online. Thank you.
Please contact us if you want some great singers to roast Mr. Hoseman this year. We have material.
I am very interested in obtaining permission, if you’re agreeable, to use one of your cartoons in a book on issues related to mathematics teaching I’m working on (on a very tight timeline). It was published in the Austin American Statesman on May 19, 2013 on testing (with the teacher talking to kids about taking the state test to see what they’d learned on their practice tests to get ready for the test). It’s a wonderful cartoon and perfect to accompany a short ‘message’ I’ve written on testing. My book is called ‘Smarter Than We Think,’ a collection of short ‘messages’ on various issues as a follow-up to my 2009 book called ‘Faster Isn’t Smarter’ (mathsolutions.com/fasterisntsmarter). I’d be happy to share any other information you’d like to know about me (I’m a well known and respected, I think, math educator) or about the book (written for a broad audience of teachers, parents, administrators, community members). Please let me know if you’re willing to consider having me/the publisher reprint the cartoon with appropriate credit and, if so, what the process might be for obtaining official permission. Thanks so much.
Cathy Seeley, Past President, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and all-around good person ;^)
Could you please contact me at my email address or call 609-683-2855? We would like to request permission to use one of your cartoons. We pay for use. Thanks.
Hey Marshall….please check your email….I have been trying to get in touch with you concerning your upcoming talk and my needing a picture from you. Thanks
Hello – My son would love to have a tee-shirt with one of your cartoons (“I support merit pay for politicians) imprinted on it. (he’s a teacher) I could get one custom made for him but I would need your permission. Could you tell me how I may get permission to use this cartoon for this specific purpose and only one shirt, or if you have an outlet that may already sell these products? Thank you so much.
How can I get a copy of one of your cartoons from the wind pool hearings in 2006?
I would like to talk to you about being a speaker for a conference that the state community colleges are hosting in 2015. How is the best way to reach you for that?
Big fan…My wife is the one that introduced me to your work. We are both UT grads and she is a Kindergarten teacher at Madison Avenue Elementary.
I work for the Jackson Mississippi Boy Scout Council and would like to invite you to attend our Old Hickory Luncheon on, Tuesday, February 25, 2014. It is from 11am-1pm at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame. Our guest speaker is Coach Bobby Bowden and the story of scouting will be told. You would be a special guest at our CEO’s table.
Hope all is well and look forward to seeing you Saturday night at the American Cancer Society Gala.
Mr. Ramsey – I would like to invite you to the 45 Annual Crosstie Arts and Jazz Festival in Cleveland MS on April 12th! We have a Writers Table and would love for you to bring your new book and be seated to sign it for a couple of hours. Is their a # I can call you and we talk more? Look forward to hearing from.
Past President Crosstie Arts Council
I seen him at my school MAUE and
You are a great drawer I wish I could
Of got a copy of your book.
I grew up reading the Clarion Ledger and your editorial cartoons. I moved to GA almost 10 years ago and wound up spending almost 6 years at the Marietta Daily Journal with Jay Whorton. The elephant story makes me laugh. Jay had such a lasting impact on everyone he met.
Jay was one of a kind and bigger than life. Loved working with him.
Marshall, your 3/16/14 Sunday cartoon about Sara Palin is false. She never said she could see Russia from her house. You didn’t say she said that, but said ‘I can see Mississippi from my house’, referring to a misquote. Sack up, apologize and make a public correction. I like your work, but facts are facts regardless of one’s political leanings.
Thanks. And thanks for writing.
We would like to publish your cartoon, “I support merit pay for politicians”, in the Alberta Teachers’ Association News. Circulation is about 35,000. Can you tell me how we could go about it? It would be extremely popular with our membership! Thanks very much.
Could you please send me an email. We are planning our first NAC Knoxville Cartoonist meeting in April. The one you gave me came back. Thanks so much. Looking forward to seeing you again.
I’m the Wellness coordinator at MS Baptist Health Systems. Just curious if you might be willing to come and speak to our employees during the lunch hour one day to encourage them in preventing skin cancer through screening and speak a little just about what your health now means to you and what it’s like to overcome great health obstacles that are present in your life–whether it’s cancer, weight or anything else. It would only be about 30 minutes if you’re interested, and I know that our employees would really enjoy it.
Feel free to respond with any requests that you might have, logistics, etc.
I saw that you had shared the story of Bill Iffrig last year, so I thought I’d share this update on him with you. It’s a short documentary and incredibly inspiring.
I am so sorry about getting back to you so late. You were so generous about agreeing to get the Madison UMC teach a cartoon for our Relay for Life fundraiser on May 2. You said to remind you. I needed someone to remind me to remind you. If it’s still possible to get one from you, please let me know at (601) 397-4746.
Thanks so much,
I am writing to share information about important news in cancer immunotherapy.
My name is Elena. I am a representative of a group of independent researchers.
We want you to know that there is an experimental drug, Neovit, that destroys cancer tumor.
We conducted a study of some properties of Neovit. The drug is effective, non-toxic and has a number of remarkable effects.
I want people to not lose hope.
View information on the site: http://www.Neovit.org. If you require more information, feel free to contact me.
Willing to answer your questions.
Are your note cards available for purchase yet ?
If so, where can I purchase ?
Hello Mr. Ramsey,
My name is Hanna and I am currently the Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Beacon (as well as a junior at UT). This summer, I received a grant from UT to begin a personal research project I proposed earlier this year: creating an oral history of the Beacon and its evolution through the stories and memories of former faculty and staff. I’m incredibly excited to begin working, and while planning who to contact for interviews, Eric Smith mentioned your name. I think your perspective would be truly invaluable.
If you are interested, I would love to meet and talk sometime this month. Please feel free to email, text, or call me. I’d love to set something up, whether in person or via Skype/phone call.
All my best,
The Daily Beacon
I have been managing a civility grant project and used your civility lemonade stand cartoon as a discussion starter on civility with several classes of high school students. I would like to purchase licensing rights for your cartoon so that I can include it in our online educational resources with sample questions to help educators incorporate it in their classrooms. I noticed that your cartoons are not on Politicalcartoons.com so any help with how I could go about doing this would be very helpful.
I recently saw a presentation that had a copy of one of your cartoons. It was a drpout shooting a basketball into a goal labeled “Good Jobs”. I am a career counselor at a high school in Austin, TX and I would like to know how I could obtain a copy of the cartoon as it is a great graphic on the benefits of staying in school. If possible, I’d like to purchase a poster of it.
In todays paper 6/21/14, your cartoon depicted the wrong aggressor. Mr. Davis was the one screaming and shouting. and butting in a discussion of people.
He openly bragged about that he was a democrat.
I witnessed the whole thing,
Just wanted you to have the truth,since I believe you received bad information.
Enjoy your cartoons, book, and speaking.
Dear Cartoonist Friend,
As Aktiffelsefe Yeni Yuksektepe Cultural Association,

I am a student at the University of Mississippi. I am also the editorial cartoonist for the Dailey Mississippian. I was wondering if you would be willing to speak with a student (me) sometime and tell be about your profession.
Mr. Ramsey, I am an English instructor at two community colleges and recently saw your cartoon depicting the value of a college education in a text called “College and Career Success.” It showed a basketball player (dropout) standing at the far end of the court and the coach saying, “You have to shoot from here.” I would love to use that cartoon image for my class “theme” but cannot find it anywhere. Can you direct me?
I am the Programming VP for the Jackson Area Delta Gamma Alumnae. As a huge fan, particularly your Tweets and Pip the dog, I was wondering if you could speak at one of our meetings. Our theme this year is CELEBRATIONS and I know that you are consistently “celebrating” your survival of melanoma. I particularly have enjoyed your illustrations of my brother-in-laws book. Would you email me if this is an interests of yours and we could discuss your available dates.
Kathy St. John
I would like to speak to you about a possible speaking engagement in October. Please send me an email at your earliest convenience.
Please explain the opossum in your most recent cartoons.
Hi, Marshall. I’d like to talk to you about possibly using one of your cartoons in a book. Please contact me at the noted e-mail address at your earliest convenience.
Thanks very much. Meredith
Is there anyway to purchase a print of the Jack Cristil cartoon’s commemorating his retirement and his passing away?
I taught Latin at Pope and you drew my t-shirt designs. My sister-in-law was Barbara Floyd Eubanks, your first grade teacher. She died of cancer in 2004. Her husband, Tom, and I would like to print stories Barbara saved from her students. We would like to talk with you about some illustrations.
I know how you “love” the deer in Madison. Didn’t know if you’d seen this yet:
Who Needs a Shotgun When You Have a Car? http://www.msnewsnow.com/story/26535197/why-use-a-shotgun-when-you-have-a-car
Marshall, I would like to secure the original artwork that was used to print the t-shirts for Southern Farm Bureau for today’s Diabetes Walk. I met you at the Delta Gamma luncheon and purchased your Banjo book but did not know until a few days later that you had also designed the t-shirt for my husband’s company that has his pic along with Banjo’s as they Tackle Diabetes Together. Today’s walk had a great turnout and we all thank you for the part you played in it’s success. Please contact me at your convenience and let me know how I might go about purchasing this sketch. The book is awesome! Thanks.
Is there anyway I can purchase any of your MSU cartoon sketches to frame for my son’s room?
How do you go about getting a copy of the cartoon with Dan Mullen telling the dog on the number one to stay? I ABSOLUTELY love it!
I’m interested in purchasing a couple of original cartoons from you of possible. Can you email me so we can discuss? Thanks so much!
Marshall, I loved your Mississippi one cartoon, but you hit one of my pet peeves, ignoring even in distorted cartoons the reality of geography. I actually loved the topic in the fourth grade. Some of my problems were in your putting U Ky a hundred miles east of Lexington, South Carolina at Myrtle Beach, UFla closer to Lake Okeechobee than to Gainesville, Vandy on the Austin Peay campus. These I can overlook, but never putting LSU at Lafayette instead of directly under Mississippi where it belongs.
It is a cartoon. I’m sorry you are so offended.
My name is Sebastion. I am serving a term with the AmeriCorps National Preparedness & Response Corps (NPRC). We have members serving with Red Cross regions across the country. This year, we are producing our first ever newsletter. The newsletter will be for members only. I am writing to ask if we might please be able to use your cartoon “One Disaster After Another” on our page about how we balance our duties (disaster response, disaster preparedness, etc.) and our personal lives, and all on a tight budget. The caption would read “One Disaster After Another” (C) 2011 Marshall Ramsey (www.marshallramsey.com)
We would greatly appreciate it.
Hi Mr Marshall,
I’m completing a poster for a college presentation on Skin cancer/Melanoma. I stumbled across your Melanoma cartoon and was wondering if it would be ok for me to use it?
This is in no way commercial and is solely for education.
Sure. Feel free to use it.
I am such a huge fan of your work. There are a couple prints from the Thad Cochran/Chris McDaniel campaign that I would like to purchase. How might a political/cartoon enthusiast go about doing that?
Your loyal fan,
I noticed that you’ve done three cartoons about the terror attacks that killed 17 in France. I’m glad people are paying attention to them and the free speech concerns related to these attacks. I am looking forward to seeing your cartoons on the terror attacks that killed more than 2,000 people in Nigeria over the weekend. I’m assuming you’ll draw a few – at least three. Surely 2,000 lives are worth the same attention as 17.
I just received “BANJO’s DREAM” today. I love it! I’m keeping it for myself!
Hi, Mr. Ramsey. I’m actually trying to track down some specific cartoons of yours from the fall of 2004. Can you help?
Would you consider doing an author visit to our school? We are a Kindergarten through 6th grade school. Total student population is 650.
We are Northshore Elementary
Rankin County School District
110 Northshore Parkway
Please e-mail me if this is a possibility.
Thank you, Mary Sanderford
You know, I didn’t think you could ever top the Chris McDaniel series of cartoons. But you have now reached an even higher level of hilarity with the Ole Miss / IHL fiasco cartoons. Your gamma knife cartoon, in my opinion, is the finest opinion / editorial cartoon I have ever seen in any newspaper. I went to bed laughing and woke up laughing. I do have a suggestion for you. You have nailed Dr. Jones with the bald head, but your caricature of Perry is not quite there. I suggest Perry be depicted on a high chair with a rattle for a gavel.
Anyway, thanks for providing us with laughs in a truly sad and embarrassing time for the State of Mississippi. Keep up the good work!!
Just wanted to reach out to you and let you know your old friend Rebel went to dog Heaven on Tuesday. He is running with ears flapping and stealing peoples stuff and just being a happy healthy dog again.
Good Afternoon Mr. Ramsey,
I am the convention coordinator for the Mississippi Propane Gas Association. We are interested in having you as a speaker at our convention. Please give me a call at 601-354-4077.
Thanks so much,
Dr. Borsig is coming to speak to our group about catholic education on 4/30. We would like to present him with a gift and I thought a signed print of your “that went well” ihl board meeting cartoon would be something he would love. I assume you get these types of requests often. I see some of them here. What is your policy on this and if this is possible, what is the procedure to acquire a signed print? Thanks and love your work. -Sam
Love your work. How about a cartoon with BB King entering heaven with St. Peter welcoming him him with, “The thrill is hear ” with the heavenly choir and orchestra behind him. JH
Hey there, Mr. Ramsey. We spoke after the Northwest Rankin graduation. You mentioned coming by the paper and id really love to take you up on that invitation but I’d like a little more information if you’d please. Can we talk a bit furthar via email?
Would love some tips from you on how to break into the freelance writing market.
Mr. Ramsey, I don’t remember the last cartoon that made me laugh out loud so heartily as the one with the Peanuts-inspired trick-or-treaters in Washington. Great job.
Hope all is well. My family and I are huge fans of your work. Please advise via email if you teach art. If so, when, where, and how much. Thanks in advance.
I don’t teach art. But thank you for being a fan.
Do you have any idea about the TEDx schedule tomorrow? I have supplied my whole office with tix but can’t find a schedule anywhere online and am getting 0 response. So, I am leaning on you, favored presenter do do me the favor of sharing any schedule you have. #epicfailontedxpromo
I would like to purchase 2 signed prints as Christmas gifts for a friend who is a big fan. Is that possible?
Thank you for you taking time for me at Lemuria Books today. I can’t put your book down….I knew I would enjoy reading your book since I enjoy your cartoons.
I’m sure you are bombarded with requests for prints of various illustrations to the point that you cannot fulfill many of said requests. However, I would certainly regret not at least asking if I could purchase your illustration of “A Dog’s Best Friend.”
Thank you for your time and consideration.
I am a dual-credit instructor / student council sponsor at Kosciusko High School. If possible, could you please contact me with information as to how we could potentially schedule you as a guest speaker at our school. Thanks in advance for your consideration.
Mr.Ramsey, I’m trying to track down some of your 2004 Medicaid-related cartoons, specifically (as an example) the one involving the bees nest.
My name is Brenda Wilson and my mother was married to your Uncle Lyle. I have family photos, bibles, paintings, etc. from your Grandmother Dorothy. Give me a call if you or someone in your family would like to have them.
Have a blessed day,
Where can I buy your books in North Mississippi or Memphis area?
Square Books in Oxford is probably the closest store.
So good to talk with you last Friday night at the Sprayberry class of 1986 reunion. I will leave my e-mail so we can keep in touch.
Sprayberry High School
Mr. Ramsey, we met at the Sprayberry Alumni event last weekend. I was hoping we might be able to touch base regarding the Foundation Gala we talked about. Great to meet you!
Great Joe! It was very nice to meet you, too. Loved that you had a Mississippi, connection — several of my Southern Miss friends are impressed! And Jennifer also told me what a good guy you are. Anyway, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I emailed you.. did you get it?
I’d like to use one of your cartoons in a blog (all of 100 readers!). Would that be OK?
Can your latest book be purchased wholesale to be sold in a retail shop, “Crow’s Nest” in Winona? Thanks, Sara Barnes
Yes. The book is 23.97 wholesale and comes in a box of 13. I can run them to you on Friday as I head to Oxford.
Will you please contact me about doing some paid artwork for a local 5K race? Thanks!
My name is Cameron Brooks. I’m currently the Photography Editor at The Daily Mississippian and a member of the Delta Psi Fraternity at Ole Miss. Our fraternity does a yearly lecture series, and I’m in charge of finding our speakers for this upcoming semester.
My goal is to get speakers from all aspects of journalism as it’s one of my passions. I would love for the opportunity for you to speak at our lecture series, which is open to both Ole Miss students and the Oxford Community.
If you’re interested, my availability is open pretty much all semester.
Thanks in advance,
I’d love to schedule for an upcoming public speaking event in Flowood. What is the best way to communicate with you concerning this?
Good Morning Mr. Ramsey,
My name is Jimmy Mumford, Interim Chair of the Department Art at JSU. I love your illustrations. One of my students would like to intern with you. I’m not sure if you use interns however, I would like for my student to gain more experience by interning with you. Please contact me at your earliest convenience at 601.979.3005.
Hey Jimmy! Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you. Because my schedule is so random, I can’t really have an intern. But I’d love to meet your student and that can be arranged! Marshall
Mr.Ramsey, I purchased some of your books for Christmas presents 2016. The payment has never been paid out yet. Whom do I need to discuss this with? The books were purchased at Mistletoe.
Hi Pat, contact Joe Williams email@example.com. He should be able to help you out.
Cooperative Energy (formerly South Mississippi Electric) hosts an annual Directors’ Update each summer to keep our Board of Directors and our Member Systems’ Boards abreast of current trends and vital information for our cooperative business. The group ends up being around 150 people comprised of all the boards as well as legislative personnel and key Cooperative Energy managers and directors.
We’d like to invite you to speak on Tuesday, June 20 in Biloxi at noon at our closing lunch. Please let me know if this would fit with your schedule.
Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you!
Hi Marshall, can you contact me about a possible speaking engagement for our organization in June 2017?
Hi Amy. Sorry it has take so long for me to get to you. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get something arranged for you.
Marshall – We had an idea (which you have probably already had) to portray Pres Trump as a “loose Bannon”
I would like to know how can I license your cartoon of Zig Ziglar to use it on the upcoming documentary http://www.zigdocumentary.com?
Hey Andy, sorry for the delay getting back to you. Check with Creators Syndicate (creators.com). They can help you on the licensing. I loved Zig. Miss him so.
There is NO CURE for breast cancer. Your cartoon, while uplifting, is misleading. The only thing we got is long term remission. Please check your facts, this is giving a lot of false hope to a lot of women. I’m four years out and I am not cured. The dragon could still be sleeping. Thanks for listening.
Mr. Ramsey. Enjoy your work. Don’t know if you take suggestions. Thought it would be nice to see Jeff Sessions being asked , “Did you talk to the Russians anytime/” And his answer, “NYET, NYET!!!” MIke in cOLUMBUS
Hey Mr. Ramsey,
This is Murray Collum from Mississippi Reading Association. We talked about you being a speaker in this year’s conference Nov. 29- Dec. 1 – need your email so we can start issuing contracts and working out details.
