To the editors:

The recent outburst over the wonderful drawing in your paper of Dorothy Tillman [December 20] is highly uncalled for. The day that anyone can tell the publisher of a newspaper what he can and can't print went out with 8-track tapes.

My family and I have enjoyed your paper for many years and hope to continue.

My hat's off to the artist. I am very ashamed of Ms. Tillman. Indeed, I'm sorry that she and I are the same color.
