The article focuses on the cartoonist, Herbert Lawrence Block. Herblock has, over the past decade, been honored by two Pulitzer Prizes and top awards of the American Newspaper Guild, the National Headliners Club, and the American Veterans Committee. Herblock comes out everyday with the unvarnished truth. It is interesting that in presenting the idea Herblock rarely uses the enormous resources of history, literature, religion, mythology at his disposal. He has evolved a group of standardised caricatures of contemporary figures.
