Zapiro does it again
I think cartoonists (Al Jaffee; David Austin) and comedians (Lear’s Fool; Jerry Seinfeld) are the best social commentators on earth. Zapiro ranks right up there.

Even people who object to the image of a subjugated woman probably admire the cartoon for its in your face message. But why, o why are we generally not prepared – Zapiro certainly is – to similarly criticise religion for its atrocious influence?
