Your Opinion: Cartoon criticism reflects ignorance

Dear Editor:

Once again we’re seeing the most deadly carcinogen also known as prejudice directed towards Jim Dyke over his e-cigarette cartoon. Booze already freely flows in our state Capitol and drivers text message while hurdling down the road at 60 mph yet this nasty e-cig freedom of choice must be eradicated once and for all. It’s time we create a perfect society.

We will, but first it’s going to take a lot of busybodies getting out of my life. Be it a briquette barbecue or vehicle exhaust, there’s plenty of other pollutants more deserving of our attention other than a glorified teapot — it’s primarily water vapor that emitted from an e-cig.

To Jim Dyke I apologize for this incessant ignorance.
