LETTER: Shame on the Free Press

The so-called political cartoon titled "The Republican Platform" appearing in your Sept. 14 edition which vividly depicts a man with an ax preparing to cut off the heads of people representing various groups from women, gays, sick, old, poor, and minorities is disgusting and appalling and not fit for publication in any periodical, let alone a local newspaper.

Obviously, someone on your staff thought it was an accurate depiction worthy of publication and just as obvious others responsible for producing your paper agreed and approved it.

Shame on you, Free Press, for allowing this to go into print! I can only hope your advertisers took note of the apparent bias and bad taste and decide to cancel their ad space for any and all future publications.
