The "Doonesbury" daily comic strips collected in "But the Pension Fund Was Just Sitting There" are from 1978-1979, when President Jimmy Carter was looking over weapon systems and Georgetown students were protesting Professor Henry Kissinger giving a speech at a dinner honoring the wife of the Shah of Iran (of course, it is impossible to read some of these strips and not remember what was to come in the years ahead). Meanwhile, Comrade Phred is the new Vietnamese ambassador to the U.N., Rick Redfern has to be part of the White House press corp, and Dr. Dan Asher, author of the phenomenally successful "Mellow: How to Get It" is on the Mark Slackmeyere show (but so is his old man and Congresswoman Lacey Davenport). These old Doonesbury strips are dated, but they rely as much on Trudeau's characters as they do on the headlines of the times and when it comes to caustic commentary on the national scene, there is nobody better.
