'Doonesbury' fails to amuse any more

info@islandpacket.comOctober 14, 2013 

I used to enjoy reading the comics occasionally in this newspaper, but the messages from one of your comics, "Doonesbury," is painfully clear to me every time I read it.

G.B. Trudeau has taken a comic strip about a bunch of college misfits and transformed it into a right-wing hatchet job.

The liberal views and attacks are so blatant that his message should include a disclaimer before anyone reads this garbage.

Why does this newspaper print what seems to be divisive misinformation and innuendo?

Do you enjoy fomenting class warfare or even printing something like this that isn't even funny anymore? I surely don't enjoy your paper as I once did.
