Appalled by ‘Doonesbury’

September 10, 2013 

Appalling! We just read the Doonesbury “comic.” The remarkable insensitivity that Garry Trudeau displays is a disgrace to your paper, and an incredible insult to the 5,000-plus firefighters and others who risked their lives to keep us safe. He wrongly jumped on the rumors regarding an illegal pot-grow and turned the scourge of that dangerous and ofttimes deadly act into a couple of fun-loving stoners, upset at the “harshing of their mellow.”

What will Trudeau target next? The 9/11 anniversary is this week. Maybe he can laugh at that.
