Visitors (1979)

Sadat, Farrah Fawcett, Haga(1979) Dry Bones cartoon - .
Today's Golden Oldie is from September 3, 1979.

This cartoon is going to take some explaining. Here in Israel, after you complete your army service, you continue to do reserve duty ("Milluim" in the Hebrew-polluted local version of English). When you are too old for Milluim ...they transfer you into the embarrassing "Old Guys Army" called "Haga". On Mr. Shuldig's right sleeve is a "Haga" armband. The three Hebrew letters, from right to left, are Hey, Gimmel, and Alef (HGA) pronounced Haga.

Back in 1979 Farrah Fawcett visited. This last week it was Madonna whose visit excited this beleaguered little democracy in the Middle East.
