, was awarded the prestigious Herblock Prize, named after the seminal cartoonist Herb Block (commonly called Herblock). "Now, winning a prize named after Herblock is a bit like winning a prize named after Einstein or Picasso.  It's an honor, but it's more than a little humbling.  You're probably not gonna live up to that," Perkins said in his speech (see the full thing below).  "Herblock's career spanned seventy years.  He took on the cold war, the arms race, civil rights, Watergate, gun control, and almost any other topic you could think to mention.  The term McCarthyism was coined in a Herblock cartoon." Congratulations Dan!
