In the upper righthand corner of this page is a cartoon, but it's not like most of those which appear on The Herald-Mail's comics pages. This is a political cartoon. The point of most of these is to make a political point with humor. This year, more than in any other political year in recent memory, we've gotten regular reader complaints about the cartoons we've used. Because anyone who purchases a product is allowed to complain about it, we listen to those complaints.

FREDERICK, Md. - Uncut versions of vintage Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny and other Looney Tunes cartoons will be shown Saturday for the Cartoon Festival at the Weinberg Center for the Arts in Frederick. The show, comprised solely of Looney Tunes, starts at 2 p.m. and will last about 90 minutes. The oldest 'toons date back to the '30s, said John Healey, Weinberg's executive theater manager. "The cartoons were often edited for television, for various reasons," said Healey, adding that he had reviewed all of the tapes.

A collection of Goofy and Pluto cartoons from the Walt Disney archives was shown on a big-screen television to the delight of all ages.

Protests harm Islam more than cartoons To the editor: There are fewer things more offensive than speeches, threats and actions aimed at forcing free peoples to change the way they live. At present, the most basic of freedoms - namely, that of speech and of the press - is facing just such a foe. Radical Islamofascists are watching the current brouhaha regarding the dreaded Mohammed cartoons, waiting to see if the West is willing to compromise on this issue. That's why, in my opinion, it's imperative for those who understand that even sacred religious articles can be mocked and criticized to take a stand.

"Before you cheat on your spouse, how about communicating with your spouse and working on the marriage? There is a lot of help out there for troubled marriages, and a lot of hurt out there in divorce. " "Ever since the Dubai ports deal was announced, The Herald-Mail has run many political cartoons about it, mostly showing Bush giving up the country's security to foreigners. I find it amazing that even The Herald-Mail apparently doesn't have a clue as to what this ports deal really is. The cartoons are lies.

As this is being written, there are 49 reader letters in the computer-storage files of Herald-Mail's editorial page editor. This number doesn't include letters that have arrived here, but have not been edited or typeset. By the end of the week, the backlog could easily could be up to 60 or 65. For letter writers, it means waiting, on average, at least two weeks to see their letters in print. By that time, they say, the immediacy of their letters are often lost and the topic they were commenting on has faded from the public's memory.
