As PWW cartoonist David Baldinger recovers from his surgery, we continue to run historic cartoons from our archives. This one by Ollie Harrington, who drew for the Daily World, shows the rising cost of military spending in the 1980s and its link to the rising cost of food.

Last week, Congress and the president just approved the largest military spending bill in history, $460 billion (not including current war spending), while Pres. Bush vetoed the domestic spending bill that would fund education, job training and health programs.
