Letter: Appalled over political cartoon

Editor, Athol Daily News,

I’ve been a bit annoyed at the consistent liberal slant the Athol Daily News has taken on since the paper was sold, but I’m tolerant and grateful for the freedoms we as Americans have, and don’t judge anyone’s party loyalty.

That said, I was appalled when I opened to page A4 of the Wednesday, December 5th paper and read the political cartoon. At the time we were all reading that paper, George H.W. Bush was being honored in a funeral service at the Washington National Cathedral with bi-partisan attendance. That’s because George H.W. Bush was not only our 41st President, but also a decorated WWII hero who selflessly served to protect the freedoms of ALL Americans!

Shame on the Editorial Staff at the Athol Daily News for choosing to run that cartoon on that day, as all flags flew at half-mast in honor of a great man.
