The Star Chickens Out: Spikes Doonesburyby Art Jacobson on Mar. 13, 2012, under Arizona Daily Star, Christian Taliban, Doonesbury, Fundamentalism, GOP, Journalism
I have to admit I’m surprised, but apparently the Arizona Daily Star has decided that Trudeau’s current Doonesbury sequence would be just too much for the delicate sensibilities of the Christian conservatives in our midst.
It’s odd that those folks who have no hesitancy in trying to force their views on the rest of us are so tender-minded that they have to be protected against criticism by comic strip.
Perhaps the Star published an explanation for cutting this week’s Doonesbury and I missed it…but I bet they didn’t even have the courage to do that. (If I’m wrong I’m sure that some Citizen reader will point it out.)
You can read yesterday’s strip here. And don’t miss the scarlet A on the back of the woman’s clip board.
In today’s strip she meets Sid Patrick, one of the sponsors of the Texas sonogram bill. Insert your cursor here.
