"Goober visits the Ignited Nations"


In the Marvel Comics "Harvey" series, in 1972 Harvey's friends Goober and Raquel are sent to UN Headquarters by their school principal and told to then make a report to their history class.  The story is replete with inappropriate stereotypes, but Goober's message resonates today.  He tells his classmates:  "The UN is a good idea, but the people there sure like to fight with each other!  I think it'll be up to kids like you and me to bring peace to the world!"
