In 1979, The New York Times asked David to contribute a caricature of Henry Kissinger to its op-ed page to accompany a piece by William Pfaff accusing Kissinger of war crimes. David did Kissinger as the Illustrated Man, tattooed in evil. A recently released 1973 recording of Kissinger telling President Nixon that Soviets gassing Jews was a humanitarian, not an American, problem, reminds us of how accurate David always was.
