Violence on the editorial page
Is there to be no end to Post editorial cartoonist Tom Toles's use of violence in an attempt to make political points? In recent days, I have seen the Republican elephant with a shovel about to murder the Democratic donkey looking stupidly into a grave (dug by whom?) [Nov. 28], a European beer drinker committing suicide (maybe) as he falls unaware to his certain death [Dec. 1] and finally Newt Gingrich getting ready to blow himself up as would a suicide bomber [Dec. 4]. Isn't there a less violent, more positive way to express political points?
As I get older (I'm 67) and turn away from violence and created drama and toward God and brotherly love, I am looking elsewhere than The Post for inspiration.
