Sac Bee cuts funny pages with little fuss from readers

Recently I posted a story how the Sacramento Bee was cutting their Sunday funnies from 8 pages to 6. This story (which is a week old), talks about the community reaction:

In a nutshell: only 250 responded. 250. That’s it.

Contrary to what you think, I don’t like the changes in the Sunday Comics. You have taken out B.C. which is one of the funniest comics I read and put in a bunch of crap. You have left us with very little to read of the comics at all. Not very nice to the people who liked Hagar, B.C., Cathy, etc. Why don’t you just not print the comics on Sunday anymore? You had plenty of space the way that you were printing them before. Now you have some of them way to big and to much junk. For what??? To satisfy those who like all the junk. That’s what happens when you have a great comic strip such as B.C. Put that one back in on Sunday. Or don’t you like what he does for the Christian holidays that millions of us celebrate???? Leave in the crap and take out a real message for a cartoon strip. But that is what has happened to the religion section of the paper too. The calendar is a joke with all the scientology events and very little else. No wonder you are a liberal paper.
