Cartoon insulted KCK

A recent cartoon on The Star editorial page (1/12) insinuated that the opening of the downtown KCK Wyandotte Nation Indian casino would prompt officials to advocate a forthcoming “whorehouse.”

What an uncalled-for slam. This casino was totally driven by superseding federal law and is a true anomaly. The Star should know this because it reported on it.

Your cartoon is an insult to the voters of Wyandotte County. We would never vote through a “whorehouse” or a public official that wanted one. Our mayor, commission and county administration are better than that. Much better.

Your cartoon was an arrogant gesture of disrespect to Kansas City, Kan.

In the past I have enjoyed Lee Judge’s cartoons. However, on Saturday he went too far and crossed the line with his outright insult to Kansas City, Kan.

I feel that he and the editor who approved the cartoon for print should apologize to Mayor Joe Reardon, the Unified Government and the residents of Kansas City, Kan.

Lee Judge is a hack. Just try to ignore him.

If the Star would retire the Doodle, I would renew my subscriber the very next day.

"Arminius is Bush dead-ender who does nothing but stalk and harrass Lee Judge on a daily basis over on his blog. He's basically BuddyT with a different screen name."

Did you learn English from Tarzan or Cheetah?

The Doodler spent several weeks attacking a 73-year-old grandmother and I'm the harasser? Incredible.

Gee, the far right thinks Judge is evil. The far left thinks Judge is evil. He must be doing something right!

Really want to help the "great dates" of the area? Open up the "State Of Kansas Certified House Of Joy"! Could put it right beside the casino and just down the block from the Kansas State Drug Store. Bring a whole new concept to down town (Motto: One way or another, you're gonna get screwed).

It would also stop a whole bunch of crime and increase the tax base. But the paragons of virtue would all have strokes.

How many subscribers is the Star willing to sacrifice for the Doodler's ego?
