To the editors:

This letter is a singular desperate plea for the immediate discontinuance of "non-sense" graphic depictions, over-blown irrelevant visual garbage represented by so-called "comics" of matt freedman. I don't know what your personal connection with freedman is, but whatever your arrangement is, the paper & the readership are the losers.

Matt Groening's absurdity is enough. We, the public, don't need two UNCOMICAL, PSYCHOTIC, UNTALENTED, & UNENLIGHTENED SCUM each week which isn't even original. freedman only "ALTERS" information readily available in a book dealing with the specific subject (Industrial Accidents! [September 2]). The true test is would a volume of freedman's crap if published in book form, would it sell? HELL NO!!

This appeal is for all the poets, photographers, graphic designers, school children, satirists, short story writers, playwrights, & religious philosophers who would very much Appreciate the opportunity to bring Quality, wholesome, & truly enlightening artistic expression for an otherwise "SOLID" newspaper.

Proposal: Readership poll to determine if the freedman "comics" were normal size, not the size of a Barn door, would anybody notice it? Would anybody remember from week to week that non-sense crap? Anybody out there think that Freedman's crap has H-U-M-O-R?

let's be fair--Let the people speak.

R. Denton
