I am writing regarding the “Doonesbury” comic strip by Garry Trudeau in the Jan. 18 Comics section. I am appalled that someone was allowed to write this and print this, especially in the part of the newspaper targeted towards children. I have an 8- and a 10-year-old, and even though we do not speak like this, my daughters are intelligent enough to know what the asterisks are for. I really feel that someone needs to be held responsible for printing such filth.
I understand that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and some people have very strong opinions toward President Bush. However I feel it is very immature and irresponsible to express it in the comic section that so many kids read.
