I was so impressed with this drawing that I found Robert Larsen, the artist, and spoke with him about it. I wondered whether he had unfettered editorial freedom. He responded that he did, as long as he was drawing about a local issue. I said that Darfur being halfway around the world surely wasn't a local issue. He said that our initiative made it one, and that it gave him the freedom to draw what he did. AG
