Hi Sherm, is it okay to post Basil Wolverton’s Hotel Trilogy cartoon at the top of this page on facebook for non-commercial use? I found it in a Google image search.

Hi Rick -- I don't own the copyright (it may be in public domain, but I'm not a lawyer so I can't say for sure), so it's totally up to you. Good luck! ---Sherm
