Lavish Corporate Spending Comes Under Scrutiny in Political Cartoons

Comments from U.S. Senator Chris Dodds - Democrat from Connecticut and currently the chairman of the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee - were featured this past weekend during CNN's coverage of President Obama's stimulus plan to "kickstart" the U.S. economy. Dodds was chastising high-paid corporate executives for their "boardroom bellyaching," and I couldn't help but think that Doug's single-panel Doug Sneyd political cartoon from the mid-1970s was still "right on target" in terms of reducing outlandish corporate spending.

Doug Sneyd first appeared in the Toronto Star in the mid-1960s and was later syndicated throughout Canada and the United States. It was not tied to a central character, story line or location.
