Sun should have rejected that extremely distasteful cartoon

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

The political cartoon on Page 4 of Tuesday, Jan. 11's, paper offended me. Using the reference to the Twin Towers and 9/11 alongside a political issue such as Obamacare was totally inappropriate. No matter what you think of the Affordable Care Act, it was extremely distasteful to picture it with a disaster that killed over 3,000 Americans in a terrorist attack.

I know that these "cartoons" are syndicated and come from outside the Laconia area, but the editor should have rejected this one. This newspaper usually displays decency in its choice of columns, and I read it daily, but this time you missed the mark.
