Empire missed the point

This letter is in reference to your decision to censor the Doonesbury comic strip this week. I think you miss the point. It is the bill that is in poor taste not the satire. Getting the strip today in which the third and forth panels were a repeat of panels one and two was certainly rewarding. Will you be publishing the punchline at a later date, so if I hang on to it I can cut and paste it together?

Editor’s note: The Doonesbury Flashbacks comic strip that wasn’t properly placed in Thursday’s edition is run in full on page A2 of this edition.
