Mr. Goldberg, How Did You Put It Over?

“MY FIRST REAL CHANCE came when Tad Dorgan left the San Francisco “Bulletin” to go East. I made such a pest of myself asking for the position that they gave it to me in self-defense. […] The paper devoted a great deal of attention to sports. So they gave me the chance to draw fight pictures, and asked me to write something — to explain what they were, probably. One of my secret ambitions, which I never had dared confess, was to learn to write — which I never had attempted. Now I commenced to write in the vein of the pictures; a sort of mild, semi-sarcastic ridicule, not of individuals but of situations and action.” — RUBE GOLDBERG, 1922
