Political cartoonists have laser-sharp acuity for combining one-panel images and one-liner zings that capture the political moment or zeitgeist. In this September, 1996 interview, radio host Linda Belans (The Linda Belans Show) takes us inside the brilliant, idiosyncratic minds of three of the best: The late Pulitzer Prize-winning Doug Marlette, the late Dwane Powell who drew for the N&O, and Times-Tribune's John Cole who was previously with the Herald-Sun. In this free-wheeling conversation, they riff with animation on what they agonize over, why there are so few women political cartoons, teaching President Bill Clinton to draw, & other topics that are eerily prescient.
