Re: “Editor's Note

Agree. I sent an email to the Star early this week to complain. No response.
I then posted my concerns, as well as a copy of the banned Doonesbury strip, on the Star's Facebook page -- several times. Each time the Star's web master deleted my post.
I also posted my complaint, with the real Trudeau strip, on Fitz's Facebook page. He kept it up; thank you, Dave.
There exist many possible solutions to the "problem" that the Star editors saw with publishing this week's Doonesbury, ones that other dailies made use of -- including your suggestion: placing the cartoon on the editorial page or deep in the usually-unread Classifieds.
But ban it?! Our supposedly progressive Arizona Daily Star? Really!? As it turned out, the Star was less successful in protecting children's sensibilities (Welcome to the Internet World, Daily Star: kids don't even know what a printed daily newspaper is!) than in insulting its aging, adult readers' intelligence.
