Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for December 19, 1981
Man: King, the word's out on your new cuts, and I want you to now I find them utterly barbaric! Cutting back further on teaching assistants will be disastrous, and the salary freeze for full professors is, of course, unconscionable! King: Herbert... Man: I'm warning you, King, I won't stand idly by and watch my department gutted! You touch a penny of my budget and I'll move to private industry! King: Private industry? Herbert, you're a Latin teacher! Man: And a damn fine one! I'd be snapped up in a minute!
