Your Opinion: Dyke cartoon called insensitive

Dear Editor:

I had started to think that perhaps Jim Dyke had toned down his sometimes irrational cartoon attacks, as I had actually appreciated several of them in a row. But, alas, he is at it again.

I found his Poor vs Rich cartoon from the July 6 paper distasteful, insensitive and ignorant. Of course there is some truth involved in that some folks have irresponsibly overextended themselves, but, by far, most poor folks have not enjoyed, and, considering future economic outlooks, will not enjoy the “American Dream.”

Issue-oriented letters to the editor in response to this or about other local topics are welcome. All letters should be limited to 400 words. The author's name must appear with the letter, and the name, address and phone number provided for verification. Letters that cannot be verified by telephone will not be published.
