Nancy has just returned from an exciting engagement in Toronto. She did two performances of her one-woman show to ebullient fans on October 16th in the lovely John Basset Theater in the convention center downtown. Her warm up act, a star in his own right, was the inestimable Simpsons director, David Silverman. He gave an extraordinary retrospective on the art of the Simpsons from its inception as a part of the Tracey Ullman Show to the half hour we know and love today, capping his performance with a drawing demonstration not to be missed.

November 2nd, 2004 marked the fourth anniversary of Nancy Cartwright Day in Kettering, Ohio. The fact that it was also a national election deciding the fate of millions somewhat overshadowed this fact, but native son Cartwright had a luscious chocolate cake topped with a key to the city icing delivered to Kettering Mayor Mary Lou Smith. A politician on election day, she was at first mystified but when it became clear that this delicious tribute was from Nancy she called with a thank you and then settled in with her office staff to devour the delicacy.
