            Mad Magazine artist dies, 91

            Mort Drucker, the Mad Magazine cartoonist who for decades lovingly spoofed politicians, celebrities and popular culture, died Thursday at 91.

            Drucker's daughter, Laurie Bachner, told The Associated Press that he fell ill last week, having difficulty walking and developing breathing problems. She did not give a specific cause of death and said that he was not tested for the coronavirus. He died at his 体彩app官方网站 in Woodbury, New York, with his wife of more than 70 years, Barbara, by his side.

            Mad magazine was a cultural institution for millions of baby boomers, and Drucker was an institution at Mad. A New York City native, he joined Mad in its early days, the mid-1950s, and remained well into the 21st century. Few major events or public figures during that time escaped Drucker's satire, whether "Star Trek" and "The Godfather" or Steve Martin and Jerry Seinfeld. In large strokes, Drucker took in every crease, crevice and bold feature. The big jaws of Kirk Douglas and Jay Leno bulged even larger, while the ears of Barack Obama looked like wings about to take flight. Being drawn by Drucker became a kind of show business right of passage, with Michael J. Fox once telling Johnny Carson that he knew he had made it when he appeared in a Drucker cartoon.

            Besides Mad, Drucker drew for Time magazine, DC Comics, for an ad campaign for fruit and vegetables and for the heavy metal band Anthrax, which commissioned him to design art for its "State of Euphoria" album.

            Drucker's illustrations, include a Time cover drawing of Richard Nixon and Mao Zedong playing table tennis, ended up in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. In 2017, Drucker was inducted into the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame.

            'Saturday Night Live' to air show

            "Saturday Night Live" will be back on the air this weekend with a show that abides by social distancing.

            The comedy sketch show will include a "Weekend Update" news segment and original content from "SNL" cast members, NBC said Thursday.

            The material will be produced remotely, the network said, in compliance with efforts to limit the spread of the coronavirus. Part of the pandemic's fallout was a shutdown of movie and TV production that included "Saturday Night Live." Its last original episode aired March 7.

            "SNL" is known for its guest hosts and musical artists, but NBC didn't immediately address whether anyone outside the show's cast would be be part of this Saturday's episode, which will air at 11:30 p.m. EDT.

            "Saturday Night Live" suffered a blow this week with the death of veteran producer and music supervisor Hal Willner. He had not been diagnosed with COVID-19, but his symptoms were consistent with those caused by the coronavirus.

            Armed men steal from Mexican mine

            A heavily armed squad of men stole an unspecified number of gold-silver alloy bars from a desert mine in northern Mexico, escaping into the remote mountains in a small plane, according to the company.

            The heist occurred Wednesday morning at the Mulatos mine in Sahuaripa, Sonora, as personnel of Minas de Oro Nacional, the Mexican subsidiary of Canada's Alamos Gold, prepared to transport bars out on a contracted plane at the mine's airstrip.

            Suddenly, five armed men arrived, held up mine security personnel and a small plane landed. Within 10 minutes, the plane and attackers flew off with the bars, according to Minas de Oro Nacional.

            Its statement said authorities were searching clandestine airstrips in the area for the plane.
