Q: I’ve been looking for a copy of the magazine (ca. 1970) that had a lampoon of the US Congress, a cartoon called “How a Bill Becomes Law” that was a take off on an old high school civics text book. Can you provide at least a citation so I know what issue I’m looking for?
A: That item first appeared in the August ’72 (The Miracle of Democracy) issue as part of a piece titled “The Miracle of Democracy” by Doug Kenney and Bruce McCall. It was also reprinted in the anthology The National Lampoon Best of 4 (1973) and the June ’85 (Best of Doug Kenney) issue.
