    FDR, he did much good, the New Deal lives on yet
    Upon his legacy a stain, sad folly we regret.
    Rounded up and placed in camps, to alleviate a fear
    Of crimes never committed, the price they paid was dear.
    A journey in a freight car, to a kid that’s an adventure
    Until reality hits home, beyond this fence thou shall not venture
    Lest the men high in the towers aim their guns at you
    A law-abiding criminal, jailed for things you’d never do.
    Eventually they were set free to start again from zero
    We skipped over this in History class, as there was no great White hero.
    Yet what was real can’t be erased, it’s childish to deny
    The shameful deeds born of bigotry, though hollow hearts may try.
    The truth can appear anywhere, no telling when it may surface
    Today I see it in Dick Tracy, thanks to Takei, Staton and Curtis.

    With both a great strip and a great first comment, I’m surprised that by Monday there were still only 2 comments…

    the rest are on the Saturday comments, as the “official” Sunday strip was more than 24 hours late to be posted

    Thanks for finally posting this.
    I would have hated to have missed it.

    The strip didn’t come up (at least on my computer) on Sunday.

    I’d like to point out two additional historical facts – the Canadian government also interned Japanese-Canadian citizens during WW2 .. and the internment/concentration camp may have had it’s genesis in the British Boer war, where Dutch/Boer South Africans were imprisoned by the British. Odd thing, this humanity .. we have such a potential for the positive and the negative.
