Pat Bagley's editorial cartoon parodying the 1989 "Tank Man" who stood in front of a column of Chinese tanks during the protests at Beijing's Tiananmen Square is a mystery to me (Opinion, Nov. 4). Bagley has a GOP elephant holding up a column of "health care reform" emergency vehicles.
Bagley has either made an about-face on health reform or has a poor grasp of history. The Tank Man is generally regarded as a hero because he stood down the Chinese army, which had been killing its own people. According to Bagley's cartoon, I guess I'm to think of the Republican opponents to health reform in a similar light.
