Phyllis Siegel: No ‘natural’ coincidence

No ‘natural’ coincidence

How coincidental is it that the Aug. 29 editorial cartoon depicting President Obama wearing a gas mask and a news article, “Tense Israelis brace for retaliation,” quotes an Israeli mother of a newborn finding no gas masks available?

Isn’t it enough that natural disasters kill so many people? Must people killing people add to that number?
