“In the January 30th [2004] issue of the The Wall Street Journal, a paper I frequently work for, the editor of its op-ed page with the evocative name of Tunku Varadarajan wrote an article called ‘Just Where Does an Illustrator Draw the Line?’ for the Friday ‘Taste’ section. In it he describes his difficulty in getting a certain illustrator (who he refers to in the opening paragraph as a ‘pompous little artichoke’) to accept an assignment without first reading it to see if he agreed with its political proposition. The illustrator, who is left-leaning, was evidently not comfortable with blindly accepting the assignment from an editorial page that generally leans towards the right.”
