EDITOR: Simple truth isn’t always in solution. So, I’m sure that the readership of the Democrat has some, like David Saluve (Aug. 1) who became disturbed that Ramirez cartoons are featured often. Mr. Saluve says that the Democrat should have “someone on your staff” (the Democrat staff) do some fact-checking and research to edit, before you print another cartoon. With this attitude, Mr. Saluve is assuming what is not in evidence:
1. That “staff” hasn’t done that already.
2. That the Democrat is basically a closed-curcuit newspaper.
Really, Mr. Saluve, would it not be better to change your attitude? Democrats used to be far more friendly. Think. “Brevity is the soul of wit.” Recognize there are readers who want the mostest for the leastest. For time spent, Ramirez is spontaneously bright and right. His cause is a clear, adept burst of political clearity. It’s bright for the right, or any spin-weary mind to be free within. And, we all know that:
“The days that make us happy are the days that make us wise.”
