To the Editor;

Well, you did it again...this summer you printed a statement in your "notes from a country kitchen" saying that "a good wife knows when she needs beating," and now you print a cartoon that was appalling! Where do you draw the line?

As if it wasn't bad enough to print it at all, you do it in the wake of Sept. 11, at a time where we are all trying to teach everyone that it's O.K. to be different. It doesn't matter what the color of your skin is, your religious preference, or your sexual preference for that matter. Spreading bigotry isn't something thats expected from our local small town paper. AND THEN...you put it in your Christmas edition!

There is enough things that we have to censor from our children, please don't make the local paper another. As parents we work hard to teach our children acceptance, and I don't want my children to think that this cartoon is acceptable. I think you owe the people of Fillmore Co. an apology.
