Political cartoon was in shocking bad taste

The political cartoon on the Herald’s Opinion page on May 21 is shocking in its bad taste. It is insulting in the extreme to the thousands of men: husbands, sons, and brothers, who fought and died for something far bigger than their personal pleasure.

To compare V-J Day (Victory over Japan) with the V-B Day (Victory over bigotry) is like comparing Beethoven’s 9th Symphony with chopsticks; the Mona Lisa with a kindergarten painting; War and Peace with a Peanuts comic strip; Einstein’s achievements with a first-grade math solution.

Surely there are better ways to work for the dignity and worth of our citizens.
