I'm not a big fan of Doonesbury,
even though I feel a connection to Gary Trudeau, because he was few
years ahead of me at the New England prep school we both
attended. His cartoons used to be featured in the school
newspaper, and the title of his comic strip derives from school slang
in the 60s, in which “doon” was a term roughly equivalent to “dork”.
I tend to share
Trudeau's political views, but find his expression of them a bit smug,
a bit self-righteous. Too preppy, maybe. Sometimes, though,
he really nails it . . .
