Vestal: SR Pulls Doonesbury

Item: Nothing funny -- or apocalyptic -- about pulling Doonesbury strip/Shawn Vestal, and: AP report

More here: Getting into abortion politics is apparently so scary that lots of newspapers decided to run a week’s worth of old strips or move them to the editorial page. Here at the S-R, where Doonesbury has already been exiled to the classifieds, the powers that be pulled the strip. Instead of publishing political satire that would provoke and dismay, engage and enrage, we punted. And everyone, everywhere, read those comics anyway. Just not here.

Question: Should the Spokesman-Review have pulled controversial Doonesbury strip on abortion politics? And/or: Are you a Doonesbury fan?
