Next week. Doonesbury, the cartoon, will be addressing transvaginal ultrasounds that will be foisted on certain women by order of the government. Apparently, there are some newspapers that are on board with this institutional rape, and rather than allow criticism of it, they will not show those Doonesbury ads. One of our local papers, the Pioneer Press, is among them. I will be cancelling my subscription in the morning.
Oh, wait, I already don’t subscribe to that one.
Anyway, those of you who know the Twin Cities will not be surpassed that the Star Tribune, the Minneapolis paper, is apparently unphased by touchy issues, while the Pioneer Press is.
Is your local paper dropping the ball on this? And if so, what are you going to do about it?
That phrase, the title of this post, is a line from the comics some, but not all, of us will be seeing in our local papers next week.
