The Mallard Fillmore comic strip on Feb. 27 was offensive, insensitive and in poor taste. In that strip Bruce Tinsley, the author, described what today’s media coverage of the 1936 Olympics in Germany would sound like. Making light of probably the worst moment in history, Nazi Germany and the Holocaust is not funny. To suggest that the media would be that insensitive, is equally as offensive. Glorifying Paul Goebbels! “The trains run on time!” The trains that took millions of people to their deaths! Where is the humor?
I understand The Gazette need to “balance,” but since you removed Doonesbury, there is no balance. It’s past the time to dump this strip from your line up.
