To the Editor:
Regarding the political cartoon of Jan. 7 referring to the Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, I would ask the question: How do you, editorial board, define the boundaries of "the free exercise" of speech or the press? The political cartoon, in my opinion, was an immature, reactionary, as well as disturbing (character wielding a knife) presentation of a very biased point of view.
Do you, editorial board, have a responsibility to provide an example of a balanced, problem-solving approach to resolving issues for our young adults, as well as our community, or would you, editorial board, defend a position of shocking, attention getting behavior?
I would think the usage of political cartoons would be to begin an open conversation regarding points of value. However, I think we could all agree that most of us are exhausted from extreme, illogical conversations. Let's not be a part of the problem, editorial board, but rather, let's provide more of an interest in knowledge and understanding.
