Prisoner Release (1989)

Prisoner Release(1989) Dry Bones cartoon - .
Today's Golden Oldie is from January 1989.

As I write this (in January of 2009) the anti-terrorist war in Gaza is raging on, and (other than Hamas-supplied propaganda videos) we have no idea about how the endeavor is progressing ...so I thought, for today's Golden Oldie, I'd just check and see where we were twenty years ago this month.

Turns out that a President named George Bush had just taken office in the United States ...and it was time to release Jonathan Pollard (the cartoon speaks of the Pollards because, at that time, Jonathan's then-wife was also being held).

Exactly twenty years have gone by since I drew this cartoon. Another President George Bush is in office, Pollard is still a prisoner, and the stain on the American Justice system grows darker with the passing of time.

Free Jonathan Pollard!
