The Janet A. Ginsburg Chicago Tribune Collection

And that neighborhood is supposed to be so quiet, too

In this political cartoon by Carey Orr, Uncle Sam (representative of the United States of America) watches from a window on "Vice Pres. Street" as Dawes (Charles Dawes, 30th Vice President of the United States) lights fireworks ("speech") in the "Zone of Quiet." One man ("political quack") covers his face, another man ("Demagogue") dives down a manhole, and a dog ("political bunk") runs away.
