DOONESBURY: Who is TNT afraid of?

My goodness. Isn’t this 2012? It’s bad enough that some politicians want to make an issue of contraceptives and women’s health issues in this day and age. It’s bad enough that some politicians want to take women’s rights away from them, and turn the clock back. Now on top of it, Tacoma’s only newspaper also decides that it is time to turn the clock back.

You will make excuses for your decision to not print Doonesbury’s controversial panels, but please don’t. There is no excuse. Who are you afraid of?

Shame on you.
