The USS Pueblo was captured by North
Korea on Jan. 23rd, 1968. North Korea says it strayed into their
waters, but the U.S. maintains it was in international waters when the
Information has come to light that the Soviet Union insti-gated the Pueblo
Crisis to obtain a cryptographic machine aboard. While still a
commissioned vessel of our navy, it's held by
North Korea yet, and is used for anti-Americanism.

The Bowls to Really Watch
(dated January 2nd, 1969)
a former colony of England called British Honduras, gained its independence
on Sept. 21, 1981. In marking the occasion in this cartoon, a part of the
British flag forms the background against the sky, its stripes used to form
rays, making reference to the idea that the sun never set on the
British empire. The remark by Charles I of Spain, "The Empire on which
the sun never sets," was first used in the 16th Century to describe the
Spanish Empire. It was later applied on occasion to the
French and Russian empires. During the
19th Century, it was also applied to the British Empire, when world maps showed
the empire in red or pink , spanning the globe.
On a personal note, my wife grew up in northern
British Honduras and lived under the British flag depicted here
