Doonesbury yanked

All right, I'll be the first to admit that Doonesbury can be occasionally offensive, and, more to the point, has not been remotely funny even once during the past two decades. But can anyone explain to me why this particular strip got pulled?


It's a symptom of the post Janet Jackson breast incident climate that we live in. I think it's especially stupid that the Providence journal ran the strip but omitted the offensive word (I'm assuming that word was "turd") because then the strip loses any meaning or even pretense at humor.
Doonesbury is hard enough to laugh at to begin with.

Zilla's dead-on here.

Hell, if the word turd is good enough for Bush, it should be for the paper.

We are a nation of politically correct wimps.

How truly odd. I wonder if today's got pulled too?
