Darrin Bell’s Candorville is in trial mode at the Raleigh News & Observer – a conservative southern paper, and as he writes on his blog, timing couldn’t have been worse.
Naturally, the week with which we introduce their solidly-conservative readers to Candorville happens to be a week that discusses civil rights by lampooning a closeted Republican Senator who trolls for gay sex in public restrooms. The readership is predictably amused.
The paper’s online forum has four conversations right now with some very negative reviews. From his blog, Darrin asks fans and readers of the News & Observer to support his feature in the comments.
