Cartoon is exceptional

 

Quite often I see letters that are critical of Michael Ramirez’s cartoons. Generally, I agree with his critics, but I do understand the right to free speech. It is what he gets paid to do, no matter how hackneyed.

However, I have to compliment him for his cartoon in the April 14 edition on North Korea and nuclear weapons. It is one the finest I have seen in a long time by any cartoonist. It speaks volumes.

Perhaps, if Ramirez could find this insight more often and bring it to his domestic political satire, he might find a larger audience that would spend more time considering his outlook, not just dismissing it out of hand, as I am sure happens often.
