Another letter writer (Oct. 15) is unhappy with Gary Trudeau's "Doonesbury" because he has allegedly taken his comic strip and turned it "into a right-wing hatchet job."
Well, for readers who are moderate to liberal -- and I count myself one of them -- Trudeau is a voice of sanity against the continued negativity of the tea party "wackos," as Sen. John McCain describes them: Sen. Ted Cruz, Rep. Michelle Bachmann and Donald Trump.
These people live in the alternative universe of those who seek to bring down the government by non-democratic means when they can't get their way by electing enough senators and congressmen to have a legitimate up and down vote on the issues.
As a former Navy pilot, I also appreciate "Doonesbury" because it compassionately champions the cause of those who have been wounded and damaged in our senseless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Never miss a local story.
This comic strip doesn't need to be censored; it needs to be celebrated.
