Molton drew outside of the lines

I found your Aug. 29 Molton cartoon of commissioner Carol Peterson to be in poor taste and very insulting. The same folks who pride themselves on their "tolerance" sure seem to have no problem discriminating against folks who disagree with their views. To many of us it reveals how hateful many "progressives" really can be.

Although Mrs. Peterson and I are from different parties and we sometimes do not agree, I still believe in displaying a certain level of respect for people. Molton's cartoon hit below the belt.

Editor’s response: We respect the cartoonist’s right to freedom of expression, and hope that readers understand how important this right is, even if, on occasion, the portrayal strikes some as disrespectful.
