Summary
Editorial cartoon shows Governor George C. Wallace fly fishing at the "Ye olde political fishin hole"; his line has gotten tangled on tree branches on both sides of the stream, labeled "Selma" on the left and "Montgomery" on the right, and at one point spelling out the words "voting discrimination" before getting hooked on the seat of his pants labeled "Stronger Civil Rights Laws".
