Letter: Disturbed by violent cartoon



I usually enjoy the satirical humor of Tim Campbell’s cartoons published in Current. I was surprised and disappointed in the Jan. 8 edition. This substitute cartoon showing the president of the United States having smashed in the head of Gen. McChrystal is disturbing. I realize growing up not playing hours of video games shooting and stabbing people/zombies may have not desensitized me enough to appreciate this. Perhaps your editorial staff should consider cartoon works that include something humorous rather than violent.
