Second, I learned that it takes a big man to laugh at himself and that, tragically, many of the members of the establishment are not very big men.
Third, I learned that I could draw cartoons better than any other kid at St. Augustine's, and that people got excited about my drawings.
Last, I learned there was deep inside me an urge to say what I thought about life and the establishment to any and all who would look at my drawings. There's too much to be concerned about, and I am a concerned citizen.
