The cartoon by Glenn McCoy of the Belleville News-Democrat (12/24, Opinion), depicts two characters. The first remarks: “Time (magazine) gave it’s Man of the Year award to a power-hungry, ego-driven socialist.” The second responds: “Al Gore’s parents must be proud.”
It is evident from this cheap shot that either Mr. McCoy has never read anything about socialism, or he has never read anything about Mr. Gore’s policy proposals.
The fact that he uses “it’s” instead of “its” indicates that not only is he unable to read; he is unable to write.
I appreciate your desire to balance the political opinions of cartoonists published in The Star, but it would be an improvement if you could find a conservative cartoonist who is not a functional illiterate.
