Powerful Comics Articulate Feelings Better than I Do.

I once ran across an educational/political comic. Someone on my shared PC cleaned out the history so now I can't find it. Text description of this comic inside...

About a month ago, I clicked on a link that lead to a page, then another page, then to someone's blog of random stuff. On that blog was an educational comic which I absolutely loved. I wanted to go back to it and show some people, but the cache/history was cleared out on the PC so now I can't find it. All I am looking for is the comic itself, not the blog.

I have been Google Image Searching educational/political comics off and on for a few weeks now and I can't find the comic I am looking for. I know this is a shot in the dark, but I have seen results from even more obscurities on MeFi during my tenure of lurking, so I thought I would give this a shot.

The comic was like this:

--One frame comic; not a series of pictures
--Point of view of the teacher looking at the students
--Black and white, hand drawn
--On the right were two or three stereotypical "old, rich, white guys" with briefcases and a dialogue balloon that said something like "We are here to see what is wrong with the classroom."
--On the left were the students. Instead of their name cards being on the desk, instead were cards on each desk with what is wrong with the students: "Hungry;" "Abusive Parents;" "Too much TV;" Etc...

Does this sound familiar to anyone? I assume it wasn't published too obscurely as someone else had found it and posted it to their blog in the first place; the other content of the blog was pretty mainstream.

I have checked some resources of comics collected online and haven't found it in those types of places, either.

Btw, according to this, it originally appeared in the Philadelphia Daily News.

That is exactly it, but I had only seen it in the black and white version. Thanks a lot!
