Political cartoon shows newspaper's poor taste

info@islandpacket.comNovember 19, 2013 

The newspaper has sunk to a new level. The cartoon on the Nov. 14 editorial page, featuring a praying elephant, thanking God for Obama's missteps, was nearly as comical as would be a cartoon of a donkey, bowing on a prayer rug, facing East, and thanking Allah for allowing the killing of four Americans in Bengazi. I wish that we had another choice but this is the only "rag" in town.
