Five years after Sep. 11 and it seems like most Americans (and for sure most Europeans) still do not believe that they are under attack by an international Fascist movement based on Islam. I wrestled with this shocking reality and thought about how to show the public being deceived, blinded, and mislead.I decided to use a tired old political cartoonist trick... representing the long-suffering public through the use of a "John Q. Public" character.Below is a typical Bill Sanders John Q. Public cartoon from March 11, 1969, and below it a John Q. Public cartoon from a generation before.Note that in both the 'toons, John Q. has a funny little pork pie hat.
