Points to ponder from the Bald Iggle

Notes and hints from our CFI

Who was the Bald Iggle? In the 1950's and 60's the cartoonist Al Capp was drawing the popular comic strip Li'l Abner, an entertaining comic for the young a political satire for the more mature, featuring the Yokum Family and their associates set in the Village of Dogpatch Kentucky.

Among the various villains, charlatans and political greasy pole climbers who frequented Dogpatch such as Moonbeam McSwine, Evil-Eye Fleegle and Lonesome Polecat, the Bald Iggle represented Truth, Virtue and Wisdom. The Bald Iggle would fixate upon you with large eyes and encourage you to stop, think and ponder.
