Dave Turnage: Pope the jokester

April 21, 2014 

Did you not notice? You published a new humorist, Art Pope, on your Other Opinion page April 16.

If his Point of View “ NC tax reform and flusher families” weren’t so naive and insensitive to the plight of those in our state who are being led into a very dark future due to his policies, I would think he was making a great attempt at being funny – perhaps trying to compete with Garry Trudeau.

He seems to have a great aptitude for informing us of the wonderful results of the current administration’s economic policies. One is convinced that he believes what he is writing. Pity.
