"This Modern World" by Dan Perkins (a.k.a. Tom Tomorrow) has won the RFK Journalism Award for Cartoon for the second time (the first was in 1998). The cartoon, carried by many AAN member papers "showcases multilayered satirical commentary on economic inequality in the United States, as well as the inaction of the politicians who have the power to change it," the awards announcement states. "Perkins’ body of work also addresses subjects such as access to health care and the gradual erosion of civil liberties in today’s post-9/11 world."
