  1. I am offended?.It was a horrible cartoon, I fail to see what is so funny about a defender of our country being being so tragically killed. The newspaper should fire this sorry excuse of a cartoonist to protect their readers from anymore of his immature doodles. What gives him the right to make light of this horrible event?
    Sarcastically shared for those readers who believe cartoons should always should be funny ?.because they ARE cartoons.
