Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for October 16, 1984
Mike: How did it go? Well, let me tell you. First, I missed my train and I was an hour late. Then my office wasn't ready. Then the receptionist made a major pass at me. Then, to top it off, I was informed that my first assignment is to prepare a Reagan campaign spot aimed at black voters. Can you believe it? Never mind that the whole idea is preposterous. What really worries me is that I accepted, that I'm already beginning to lose the courage of my convictions. Does it worry you, too, J.J.? J.J.: Not nearly as much as the receptionist.
