Shame on New Times!


I am deeply offended by the recent political cartoon ("A year in cartoons," Dec. 28) depicting Supervisor John Peshong with Supervisors Lynn Compton and Debbie Arnold on their knees at his feet.

The cartoon sets women's equality back 50 years.

While these supervisors represent a conservative constituency, none of these elected officials believe women are less than equal at that dais and equally serve their supervisorial districts.

With the heightened awareness surrounding sexual harassment in this country's current landscape, your publishing that cartoon simply paints you as sexist as a Cosby, Lauer, Rose, or Weinstein.

Shame on Russell Hodin for drawing it, and shame on you for publishing it!
