Title: Califlynia
: Daily News of Los Angeles
Date: Aug. 27, 1981
About this cartoon: The Medfly (Mediterranean fruit fly) invasion was a major threat to California's agriculture. Quarantine zones were set up, orchards were stripped and sprayed with pesticides, and Governor Brown belatedly okayed the use of the insecticide Malathion.
Noteworthy: A fun cartoon that touched upon the various terms relating to the event.
