Thanks for running Doonesbury

I imagine you are getting some negative responses to the Doonesbury cartoon strip so let me counter those by stating that I am glad you have chosen to run the current panels regarding a Texas law that requires women seeking an abortion to first undergo an ultrasound.

Although Doonesbury creator Gary Trudeau can be controversial, he is dealing with an important issue in a manner that certainly draws attention, and the attempts by conservatives to make already unpleasant choices some women face more difficult and restrictive need to be countered.

Again, thank you for running the strip.

  • Trudeau tells the truth about anti-abortion fanatics

    Ouch! Apparently the truth hurts, as evidenced by the visceral reaction to last week's "Doonesbury" cartoons. The strip dealt honestly and pulled no punches about the utter hypocrisy and lack of morals of the so-called "right to life" zealots.

  • Cartoonist attacks Gingrich while press coddles Obama

    Garry Trudeau's Sunday Doonesbury cartoon which excoriated Newt Gingrich went way beyond the pale! It was not only disgustingly partisan, it was cruelly subjective. I guess there's a slim-to-none chance of seeing a similar cartoon slamming President Barack Obama.
