A Ghoul Cartoon

Spelling out what political cartoonists
really mean
In his customary understated fashion, Chuck Asay responds to a talking point memo about the Federalist papers in the WSJ by imagining a scene at an average university library. While contemporary subjects of more interest and relevance to students are kept at ground level, the historical marginalia are stored where they belong, kept cool, dry, and safe deep in the archives. A professor in cap and gown promotes learning about the documents by quizzing the student who went in search of them. It’s important to understand early arguments for federal power over states’ whims, after all.
A good cartoon.
