Tasteless cartoon

Your choice of political cartoon in the July 9 edition of the SDN depicting a Confederate flag at half-mast in memory of Sen. Jesse Helms showed a complete lack of taste.

The political leanings of the SDN are no mystery to regular readers, but does the hate of anything Republican go so far as to show such disrespect for a man who served his country for over 30 years?

You don’t have to like the man or his politics, but would it be asking so much to show a little respect? You know, Sen Byrd, D-West Virginia, used to actually belong to the Klu Klux Klan.

I wonder if we’ll see a cartoon like the one you printed when he leaves this world. Never mind, I already know the answer.
