As a subscriber to The News Tribune for more than 20 years, I am offended by this paper’s reaction to a political cartoon. I first read of this issue underneath a full quarter-page picture of a dead Afghan civilian laying in the back of a vehicle. Yet you will not publish a Doonesbury “cartoon” that deals with a major issue in politics today that could ultimately affect the rights of half of the U.S. population.
This is an issue for women, partners and their doctors to deal with in private. The state legislature of Texas has brought this out in the public arena, and you see fit to carry that part of the news but not a political satire of it? Where is the freedom of expression that you so adamantly defend in other editorials. Does that only work for issues you want to cover?
I could understand moving the satire to the editorial page for the week or always but not publishing it smells to me. Consequently, as much as I will miss it every morning, I will be dropping my subscription to this unworthy, two-faced fish wrap.
