Cartoon was 'mean-spirited'

Editor:

I am not a Democrat. I did not vote for President Obama in 2008, and I will not vote for him in 2012. I am strongly in favor of free speech.

Yet I am dismayed that The News-Times showed such a surprisingly strident, mean-spirited disrespect for a sitting president and commander-in-chief with B.J. Wood’s “No-talent hacks...” cartoon (March 25).

When adults are carrying on like this, it should surprise no one that our children are becoming devoid of what used to be considered Southern common courtesy, good manners and respectfulness.

The News-Times usually shows that it has class, and it uses good judgment. This time, I think that perhaps The News-Times slipped just a bit.
