Title: The long shot
: Daily News of Los Angeles
Date: Nov. 3, 1982
About this cartoon: The small type on the basketball reads "sports without education." The cartoon addresses the over-emphasis on "striking it rich" in sports that some youths, most distrssingly those in inner cities, rely on instead of working towards academic success.
Noteworthy: A very well-received cartoon, especially among educators. A challenge here was to draw a racially- and ethnically-neutral kid, and I think this one works pretty well.
