Dear Letters Editor,

I am a long-time reader of your newspaper. I even had a letter published in 2019. I am untroubled by strong writing and strong views. That said, Bell’s most recent cartoon strikes me as racism—straight up. In this situation, I can no longer buy your paper. That said—I think you should remain free to publish what you want. Should you come to your senses and a sense of decency, let me know, and I will consider buying your paper again in the future.

Only wishing you well,

/s/
