Remembering Herblock

The Washington Post's celebrated political cartoonist Herbert L. Block, who signed his strips "Herblock," died on Monday at the age of 91. His spare-no-one, three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoons have covered such charged topics as McCarthyism (he coined the term), de-segregation of public schools, the Vietnam war, and more recently, welfare reform and the possibility of Clinton's impeachment. Hailed by many as the most gifted political cartoonist of all time, Herblock's presence in the newspapers and public consciousness will surely be missed.
