Columbus Day: The Cartoons

The ironies—extremely painful though they are—of Columbus’ saga have not been lost on cartoonists. Here was a man who didn’t know where he was going and “discovered” a place where plenty of people were already living. Wait, did he discover a “New World”—or was it India, full of Indians? The story is full of comedic possibilities.

And here’s a take by our resident cartoonist: A Columbus Day Classic by Marty Two Bulls.

Today, with discussions of terrorism and immigration on the front page of every newspaper, cartoonists find even more reasons to draw on the story of Columbus’ story. As Clarence Darrow said, “History repeats itself—first as tragedy, second as farce.”

Here comes the farce:
