Michael Watkins (Dec. 28 Viewpoints letter, "New comics are offensive") believes that The Boondocks "does not belong on the comics pages of a family newspaper" because it attacks Southern Republicans. Did he make the same complaint over Mallard Fillmore, which is just as "mean-spirited" in its attacks on liberals?
Why do conservatives, with their supposed support of American liberty and values, always want to quash any expression of opinion they disagree with? How about, if you don't like a column or a cartoon, just don't read it? Or are your beliefs so fragile that they cannot survive any dissent?
