Reader: Doonesbury abortion comics should be available in Denver Post

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!
