I am writing to register my dismay at your publishing the cartoon on the back page of the June 16 issue.
It has been proven that the Orlando shooter was an American.
This cartoon does nothing except to possibly stoke the flames of hatred in this already toxic political season.
Frankly, I am disgusted that the Journal placed this cartoon in the paper. The Journal should not be encouraging bigotry and that is what this cartoon has done.
It is my hope that the Journal will be more cautious in what it is choosing to publish.
