Disrespecting Civil Rights

To the editors:

I wholeheartedly support you in the matter of the political cartoon which allegedly "disrespects" Dorothy Tillman [December 20]. Given her past conduct Ms. Tillman has earned some "disrespect."

We did not support the civil rights movement of the 1960s so that freedom could be redefined to the satisfaction of Lu Palmer and Ms. Tillman.

The saddest aspect is that Ms. Tillman and her friends still don't understand one of the most basic motivating principles of the 1960s. If any one of us is denied our rights, then the rights of all of us are threatened.

Keep up the good work and good luck.
