    The only recorded private protest? Wow.
    Love those cartoons too, Miss Julia, the love child of Mr Sqiggle and Miss Jane. 😀

    William Cooper certainly lived in different times. I never knew that.
    I love the way good political cartoonists get right to the heart of an issue, and pull no punches.

      I am amazed that political cartoonists can say, using a few words and a couple of images, something that would take me ages to express — and still never get right to the heart of the issue.

      William Cooper certainly seemed like a wonderful man.
