And I can't decide whether it was a good thing that they ran it in the comics section. It may get more attention there than it would in the news pages, but some readers may not realize that the Prickly City's criticism of Sharpton is accurate, and, if anything, too soft.
We should be grateful that, this time, our local monopoly newspaper did not censor the strip.
And, if there is anyone at the Seattle Times who could do a frank portrait of Sharpton, I've missed them.

(For a slightly fictionalized portrait of Al Sharpton (or, possibly, Jesse Jackson), read Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities.)Posted by Jim Miller at August 25, 2013 04:18 PM | Email This
