Dear Sixties People:
Pogo's cartoon was not at all reactionary. On the contrary, "we met the
enemy and he (them?) is us" was downright subversive. Pogo's declaration
was on par with "we had to destroy Vietnam in order to save it." For the
first time, that analogy was made very clear in all the dailies which
carried the cartoon.
Once again, American culture is such that cartoons (like Doonesbury) are
in the forefront of "radical thought." It's sad.
