When I read my paper, I always read the comics, hoping for a bit of lightness for the day, but was hit one day by the opposite. One strip, Soup to Nutz (June 10), disturbed me greatly. it concerned a little boy whose father had deserted him, and his effort to cover it up. We all know this sort of thing happens, but to make light of it is repugnant. I believe you owe all of your readers, and especially any who have been caught in a like situation, an abject apology.
