    The BEST cartoon ever was published 45-55 years ago (??) … and I keep hoping you’ll give it a reprieve. It was on our bulletin board at home and my Dad would say (coming home for dinner .. his usual comment if he saw what was for dinner) …”oh dear, I had anthropologist for lunch.” The cartoon was of a native with spears and such looking into his mate’s cooking cauldron and remarking, “Oh damn, I had anthropologist for lunch”. It was a classic and I wish you’d republish it at some point. Our family has been a New Yorker family for decades and decades and decades.
    Thanks for your consideration. Susan V Bonner; 321 Colony Blvd; Lexington, KY 40502
