No nuts here, ei­ther

The Washington Post - - FREE FOR ALL -

As a Sun­day-only print sub­scriber, I had no idea the Nov. 1 print edi­tion of The Post cen­sored “Pearls Be­fore Swine” un­til I saw Stephan Pastis’s Face­book post about the mat­ter. I read the comics on­line, and The Post pub­lished the un­cen­sored ver­sion on its web­site. If The Post’s in­ten­tion was to spare younger read­ers from the risque word­play, it would prob­a­bly have made more sense to cen­sor the on­line ver­sion and print the orig­i­nal.

I sin­cerely hope The Post doesn’t sack Pastis. It was nuts of The Post to cen­sor in the first place.
