A cartoon from Forty Cartoons in Wartime, 1945

This cartoon, one of a collection of Chase's editorial cartoons published during World War II, is relevant even today! (We particularly like the little fish jumping in the pothole, suggesting that the hole has been there for quite some time.)The caption accompanying the cartoon reads:

The founderous condition of New Orleans' streets is a frequent complaint among out-of-town visitors. Orleanians have become so used to corrugated surfaces and deep sink holes that they have come to take these hazards as a matter of course. Apathy, as always, is the Enemy of Good Government.
