The Jan. 27 “Cartoon roundup” [Opinion] displayed a yellow school zone sign with bullets flying and children fleeing. It went so far as to show a student on the ground, presumably shot.
I cannot believe that such a deadly reminder of domestic terrorism, with children as victims, made the cartoon roundup. The pains of Sandy Hook, Columbine and other frequent shootings at our nation’s schools are not a cartoon matter.
This cartoon is way over the line and insensitive, especially to parents who have lost a child in a school shooting.
