Day 239: It’s Earth Day!

“We have met the enemy and he is us.” -This is derived from the famous statement of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry on the “War of 1812”: “We have met the enemy and they are ours”. It appeared in a “modern day” poster for the first Earth Day in April 1970, and next in the comic strip itself in August 1970 in Porky Pine’s mouth, and was reused by Kelly in a subsequent Earth Day poster (1971).” Source
