Doonesbury on Banking Pigs

Flattr this!

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).
