Johnson was a newspaper cartoonist - Concord Monitor, UNH student newspaper, Nashua Telegraph. Lives in Lebanon. The local Lebanon, that is. Upper Valley. Dartmouth. Right next to Vermont.

Ben browsed through it and noted that no one would understand these cartoons now. A few people at this blog would, but point taken. References to the Clamshell Alliance, Nantucket seceding to NH, CWIP - long past their sell-by date. Nothing shameful about that, it's the nature of political cartooning.

The stereotypes of conservatives are unchanged in 3 decades, though.
