George Washington (1789-1797) George Washington opened the curtain on the presidency. A Bonus for You This "All the Men Presidents" section is a bonus for the readers of the Sunday Gazette-Mail's Bicentennial edition. It is a somewhat irrevent look at our nation's 37 presidents from the pen of Taylor Jones, a caricaturist who has been known to operate with tongue firmly in cheek. He labored long and lovingly over the sketches and captions while drawing upon historical fact to justify the approach he took to depicting the individuals occupying the Presidency. That approach is intended to be neither complimentary nor uncomplimentary but historically true. Taylor Jones has been on the staff of the Sunday Gazette-Mail and The Charleston Gazette almost two years. In that time he has established a reputation as a caricaturist with the grit to draw his subject with pimples intact. His most controversial caricature was of a fat Elvis Presley, which brought down the wrath of Presley fans. In his mission to puncture the pomposity of the mighty Taylor Jones has succeeded admirably -- as this bonus section attests. ,976?
