This past weekend, the Denver Post reported about controversy over abortion items in the Doonesbury comic strip. The piece noted that the Post doesn't publish Doonesbury; it stopped doing so this past June. The decision retroactively frustrated one reader, who shared a slew of passionate notes on our earlier offering, including this one.

Boooo to you Denver Post! Who is pulling your strings? You cater to a very progressive public here, and pulling this shows that you are in the somebody's pockets!!!!I I have taken the Post for years and years -- perhaps it is time to pull my subscription if you are going to censor what I want to read! IF PEOPLE OBJECT TO DOONESBURY, THEY HAVE THE CHOICE TO NOT READ IT YOU JACKASSES!
