I’ve been a fan of Garry Trudeau’s Doonesbury cartoon since my student days (when, coincidentally, Trudeau was profiling life as a university student).
As any reader of the strip knows, unlike most comic strips the characters in Doonesbury age and move with the times. Today’s times are those of a financial crisis, and once again I’m playing a role–though as analyst and critic rather than participant. Ditto also Trudeau, who has posted a lovely little jibe in today’s Sunday spread. For all those who are exasperated with the spin doctors and debt spruikers who have grown fat while bringing the globe to the economic precipice, I recommend today’s Doonesbury cartoon (Sunday February 21).
