Taste and philosophy

Last week the Empire staff opted not to run a current series of Doonesbury, which satirizes recent news surrounding abortion. A note on the editorial page said that this was a decision of taste, not necessarily philosophy.

In that regard, I would like to ask that you remove the following items from the Empire’s pages, for reasons of taste, not necessarily philosophy: Anti-choice advertisements and the weekly column on the editorial page from the Catholic bishop, whose views I often find distasteful. For reasons unknown, this particular religious leader is afforded a weekly forum in a high-profile section of the newspaper, while columns from other religious leaders are relegated to the Neighbors section and are not similarly given a weekly forum.

If these are indeed matters of taste, not philosophy, then I, as a longtime subscriber to the Empire, would appreciate consideration for my tastes.
