Cartoonist draws blood- er, ink

A very sharp-edged cartoon draws sharp-edged complaints from readers of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and the paper's editor replies very eloquently:

There's a natural tension between freedom and sedition that is as old as this country (even during wars). One side has always argued that dissent makes this country stronger, while the other has claimed we should rally around our leaders and the military (sometimes even being willing to jail those who cannot agree).

Wow -- I'm pretty impressed, both with the response and the original cartoon. Usually, the P-I isn't so much very good. Sometimes it's fun to read it for the... badness, really. (This, however, is especially true of the fluff pieces/entertainment section, which is wholly separate from the news, though often the news side is kind of meh. But the Entertainment section is kind of hilarious. Apparently, their lead movie reviewer, William Arnold, actually has a wide reputation of being the worst reviewer in the business; having read a bunch of his stuff -- it's deserved!)

So.. yeah, to see something so out and out good in the P-I is pretty cool. Thanks!
