For about the last year and a half the New Yorker has been running
some great cartoons pertaining to health care and the health care
debate. The most recent issue I have at home contains two I found
quite delightful: a lion with a thorn in his paw is looking sadly
at a mouse, as the mouse says to him, "I'd like to help you but I
work for a different HMO"; in the second, a tired woman asks a
man, presumably her husband, if he couldn't somehow get one of
those "personalities in a bottle". (It just occurred to me I am
probably misremembering the latter. Don't check to see how wrong
I am, the Freudian implications might devestate me.)
As for permission to reprint for presentations. I would just call
the New Yorker and ask. I've done this myself, not with the New
Yorker but several professional journals, discovering that if I
explain the limited use I intend for any reproduction and the
number of people which will see the presentation, most editors
will give you permission immediately, at no charge.
