Am I a prophet? A time-traveling cartoonist? (via Pocho)

This weekend POCHO Florida Burro Jefe Santino J. Rivera sent me a heads up about a Tweet featuring one of my editorial cartoons. I clicked the link and just about fell out of my chair.

The graphic in the Tweet was a side-by-side presentation of my cartoon showing a Native American confronting an Indian-mascot-garbed sports fan next to a photograph of a Native American confronting an Indian-mascot-garbed sports fan (image, above.)

They are eerily similar. The strange part was that I drew my cartoon in 2002, and the photo was taken last week in Cleveland, home of the Cleveland “Indians”:

By the end of the 1930s, much of Latin America had fallen under the sway of long-lived dictatorships: Maximiliano Hernandez Martinez in El Salvador, Jorge Ubico in Guatemala, Rafael Trujillo in the Domincan Republic, Fulgencio Batista in Cuba, and Anastasio Somoza in Nicaragua. Somewhat conspicuously, these regimes emerged precisely in those countries where the United States had intervened or intermeddle to the greatest degree. As FDR is alleged to have said of Somoza during a visit to Washington in 1939: ‘He’s a son of a bitch, but he’s our son of a bitch.’
