Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

    How very disappointing! I can’t decide what’s more infuriating — the blatant misogyny or the fact that this is precisely the sort of division republicans intended when they redrew districts to favor their party and oust Democratic incumbents. Al Whitesides and Amanda Edwards are both dedicated public servants who are being forced to run against each other, but they continue to cooperate on the county commission and in their party. This depiction is unfair to both, but particularly to Commissioner Edwards. Your cartoonist needs to get his facts straight or find a new profession. This isn’t funny and doesn’t look good for the Mountain Express either.

      90% of carton “humor” depicts conservative’s or Republicans in an bad light. Maybe you will be able to suffer through this small, quick and temporary alternate view. We like diversity, right.
