In any case, I answered Benson with a cartoon of my own, depicting him with vampire teeth and a serpent's tongue. He later contacted me about my depiction and we had it out. See the cartoon and our exchange here.
Tonight I see several hits on that post, so I googled Steve Benson's name to see that he was okay. I was afraid that maybe he came to some misfortune, causing people to google his name and finding a link to my post. (Steve can be a nice guy, and I wouldn't want anything bad to happen to him.
There was nothing bad about Benson in the news, to my relief. However, I was amused to see that Google's illustration of who he is (above, left), was accompanied by my cartoon depiction of him, not a serious image. I imagine this was just a mistake on Google's part. In any case, I get the last laugh, Steve Benson!
