Johnny Hart's B.C.
In case you missed the funny papers Sunday, Johnny Hart's B.C. took a swipe at Charles Darwin and evolution. Some people out there are questioning why . . . newspaper editors didn't spike the comic strip like they sometimes do with politically charged ones such as Doonesbury. (According to Creators Syndicate in a report on the Editor & Publisher Web site today, the May 1 strip wasn't dropped by any of the feature's 1,200 client newspapers.)
Do these people really feel threatened and offended by a clever little comic strip that took a stand on creationism over evolution? It doesn't make any sense unless, of course, these followers of Darwin consider evolution their religion.
Speaking of Doonesbury, I used to enjoy Garry Trudeau's work, but his liberal rants grew tiresome to me. You know what I do now? No, I don't demand that my local paper stop carrying it—I just stopped reading it, just like I won't read Cathy.
