He thinks that old liberals are 'bubbleheads.' He does admit to being a 'cottage industry capitalist.' He has a strong sense of 'Puritan ethic' which extends to his belief that America is the best place to achieve as long as you're not handicapped 'by being black or something.' He is somewhat conservative on domestic fiscal policies but hates illiberal governments and people like the shah of Iran. He doesn't believe in inheritance because it 'perpetuates dynasties of cretins.' He is against gun control. He is antisnob and antielite, but does not object to individuals he considers elite by virtue of their talent.

He's one complicated fellow.

In Drawing Fire, Donald Katz profiles Bill Mauldin, the curmudgeonly political cartoonist. At 23, Mauldin won the Pulitzer Prize for his creation of two mud-caked dogfaces named Willie and Joe who became every soldier's image of men at the front. A consummate master of his art, Mauldin continued to inspire and stir up trouble with more than 5000 cartoons throughout his career.

Drawing Fire is one of the fascinating profiles featured in The King of the Ferret Leggers and Other True Stories by award-winning journalist Donald Katz, available in audio exclusively at audible.com. It was originally published in Rolling Stone, November 4, 1976.
