Save the outrage over doodles
I am amazed and saddened that some people can become so upset over the mumblings of a dysfunctional cartoon viking that they would actually take the time and effort to write a letter to The Post to voice their objections to it [“Simply horrible,” Free for All, Sept. 2]. Some advice: Get a grip, obtain a sense of humor, and reorder your priorities.
I don’t particularly like what passes for cartoon fare from Tom Toles, “Doonesbury” or “Prickly City,” but I take them for what they are: poor attempts at political satire. Hagar the Horrible wouldn’t know how to spell “satire.” Were women once regarded as “spoils of war”? Yes. Did they once not have the vote? Yes. Have these situations been relegated to history? Yes. Be happy about it, and get incensed about something that really matters.
