Department of Offensive Cartoons

To the editors.

I don't know what possessed you to print this week's (March 19) P.S. Mueller comic, but I do know that it is offensive enough for me to reconsider bringing the Reader home. It's also offensive enough for me to reconsider patronizing businesses advertised in the Reader. As a gay man, I live in a time when the threat of verbal harassment, physical violence, and murder are daily realities. I certainly don't need uptight homophobic fucks like Pete Mueller to tell me to shut up about my sexual orientation when my sisters and brothers are being killed in the streets of Chicago.

P.S. Mueller replies:

The subject of my cartoon was nattering, not sexual preference. Thanks for proving my point so elegantly.
