Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for February 28, 1976
Duke: Art for art's sake? Who are you kidding, Mr. Ming? You try that in China and Mao will have your head! Mr. Ming: Mr. Duke, I think you have a misimpression of the Chairman. Mao Tse-Tung is a servant of the people. You seem to think we've deified him! Duke: Well, you have, practically. I mean, he's the folk-hero of millions, rarely grants interviews and is never seen in public! Why, he's as revered as Bob Dylan is in our country! Mr. Ming: Perhaps, but the Chairman's only as good as his last cultural revolution. Duke: Same with Bobby!
