Letter to the NY Post

I just fired off this letter to the editor of the New York Post regarding the allegedly racist Delonas cartoon. I'm about to head out for the night, but more on this next week:

The meaning of the chimpanzee cartoon was immediately obvious to me, and it clearly was not racist. In fact, I found it quite amusing myself. Any educated American should know that legislation in the US is created by Congress, not by the President. My one quibble is that it really isn't fair to attribute the stimulus bill to a chimpanzee, which is in fact one of the more intelligent primates. Of course, one has to make sacrifices for the sake of topicality; Delonas would never have made his deadline if he'd waited for the police to shoot a crazed manatee.

I'm somewhat disappointed that you issued even a token apology; Ignorant bullying by the likes of Sharpton should not be indulged, lest we encourage more of the same.

For those who haven't heard, police recently shot and killed a chimpanzee who had attacked his owner's friend.

Agreed.
