Garry Trudeau's "Dewey" moment

It was such a busy week that it wasn't until my Saturday morning breakfast with my wife Jackie that I learned that the San Antonio Express News wasn't the only paper to not run this week's Doonesbury strip.  So, taking a few moments to look at the Google news archives, I found a couple of articles from other major newspapers concerning their decision not to run this week's strip.  My favorite?  Why it was the one from the Chicago Tribune comparing the strip to their 1948 headline:  "Dewey defeats Truman!."  Except, Garry Trudeau the genius behind the Doonesbury comic strip, got his prediction right.
