As a native Alabamian, honed by the fires of bigotry into the liberal I am today in Boston, I admire any Southerner who can break through the stultifying poison of our Southern isolation and speak out. This is one of Lukavitch’s milder cartoons, but I’m glad to see the Atlanta Constitution being the beacon of light it was under McGill…at least in this cartoonist’s work.
Where did I get the idea that the press was the 4th Estate, with the mission to keep the checks and balances working by directing the spotlight of inquiry on the other 3 power-mad divisions of government?
