Please. Read up on your First Amendment. There is no government action here. These are private citizens expressing their opinion that the cartoon was in bad taste. And it was in horribly bad taste.
Let's see. I guess I'm just a dumb, unenlightened hick because I don't get the meaning behind Mr. Bennett's piece of "work." Clay just happens to take a swipe at Judge Bales two days after Judge Moon's unexpected death. Oh, the timing. He did not publish this cartoon when Judge Bales was otherwise in the news. Nope. I guess there was nothing else to doodle about that day. At least Harry Austin took the "high" road and decided that if he could not say anything nice, don't say anything at all. Nice work, tcrashfx. Hopefully, your piece of work won't be so mysterious to the uneducated masses as apparently Clay's is.
Can you be any more insensitive, Clay? Judge Moon isn't even buried yet. Have you ever spoken to Judge Bales or sat in his courtroom? Maybe you should before hiding behind you pen and making such broad judgments.
