    “He attacks me every day. With barbarities! This must stop. We must unite as a party and direct barbarities such as Willie Horton ads at the OTHER party. I hope Trump doesn’t try to deport me for speaking in Spanish! Our party needs to be responsible about xenophobia and confine its efforts to things like questioning Obama’s birth certificate. And we surely must not let Trump get away with claiming to be smart at economics. I have claimed that I can deliver a 4% growth rate, so I know an economic charlatan when I see one. There isn’t room in...

    Letter Wed, 01 Feb 2006 | Dr. James Wasek
    Washington Post Editor-- As a military verteran, I am starting a grass-roots campaign that I plan to spread throughout the entire Washington DC metropolitan area: that is to have every single service member and veteran that currently receives the Post to UNSUBSCRIBE as a direct result of your callous, disrespectful decision to publish Mr. Toles' editorial cartoon on 29 January 2006. To place a wounded American soldier in the context of that cartoon was nothing less than a raging insult and a spit-in-the-face to every military member that has fought, is fighting or will fight for democracy. Can you even...

    NEW YORK A Tom Toles editorial cartoon published in The Washington Post on Monday and on its Web site has drawn a very rare and very strong protest letter to the editors from all six members of The Joint Chiefs of Staff, E&P has learned. The letter, not yet published by the Post, charges that the six military leaders "believe you and Mr. Toles have done a disservice to your readers and your paper's reputation by using such a callous depiction of those who have volunteered to defend this nation, and as a result, have suffered traumatic and life-altering wounds....

    Mr. Philip Bennett Managing Editor, The Washington Post 1150 15th Street NW Washington, DC 20071 To The Editor of the Washington Post: We were extremely disappointed to see the editorial cartoon by Tom Toles on page B6 in the January 29 edition. Using the likeness of a service member who has lost his arms and legs in war as the central theme of a cartoon is beyond tasteless. Editorial cartoons are often designed to exaggerate issues - and your paper is obviously free to address any topic, including the state of readiness of today's Armed Forces. However, we believe you...

    This week people have been doing more agonizing than laughing at newspaper cartoons. Not just Muslims, but now America’s military forces – and the rest of us who support our warriors – are disgusted by a cartoon. Specifically the cartoon drawn by Tom Toles and published in the Washington Post making light of an amputee recovering from battle wounds. Beyond being repulsed by cartoons, the two movements have nothing in common. Here is the statement sent by the Joint Chiefs of Staff to the Washington Post: We were extremely disappointed to see the Jan. 29 editorial cartoon by Tom Toles.
