Suggestive political cartoon offensive
Re: Political Cartoon
[Volume 8, Issue 10]
I found your cartoon [last month], featuring an elephant and a donkey dressed in a way that only seems to suggest prostitution, offensive. In divisive times, when politics can’t seem to be above the fray of derogatory comments, I’d hope that my local newspaper would do a better job making sure that no particular group is not the butt of anyone’s joke, not the target of anyone’s comic bottom line.
As a woman, I find the comic offensive. As a mother, it is not something I’d like to explain to my two young sons. As an English teacher at Steele Canyon High School, it is something I could teach in my rhetoric unit, explaining how the political groups are being portrayed.
Thank for your service to La Mesa via the city’s local newspaper.

I think Mike Gwinup, Grossmont Class of ‘66, went to a military academy and was omitted from your listing.
