Post letter on shrinking comics

Washington Post Saturday, January 5, 2008; Page A15

Regarding the recent changes to the Comics pages:

Why not just eliminate the comics altogether? That would be far more humane than shrinking them to the extent that you have. Many readers, children included, have less than perfect eyesight; many of us now need magnifying glasses to read your comics. Our family has always enjoyed "Slylock Fox" together, but none of us can now "find the six differences" in the shrunken panels. This is almost sadistic and an affront to readers paying to subscribe to material we are now unable to read.

-- C. Randall Williams
