Douglas Knoop: Christmas offense

Christmas offense

The Christmas Day editorial cartoon “A Christmas tragedy” was astonishingly mean-spirited. Considering the day’s significance, the cartoon was virtually beyond comprehension in its offensiveness. On a day when we try to celebrate friends and family as well as pray for peace, hope and joy for all of humanity, one can only wonder why you would choose to print such a negative, divisive message.
