Today's classic Don Wright cartoon

November,1981...TIME Magazine's unflattering portrait of South Florida hits the newsstands. 

Chamber of commerce and tourism official were sent into a state of shock after reading quotes like this in the magazine:  “I see people walking down the streets openly carrying guns, some in their hands, others in their holsters. You don’t dare honk your horn at anybody; you could end up dead.” 

Miami News cartoonist Don Wright responded to the hysteria with this classic cartoon.

Miami News, Nov. 17, 1981.
