Thread Name: BS: Is Doonesbury going too far?
Subject: RE: BS: Is Doonesbury going too far?
Doonesbury has gone way out on various limbs before, and found itself moved from the comics to the editorial page or just expunged in reprisal. I'm not privy to Gary Trudeau's balance sheet, so I don't know the effects on readership, but I never have trouble finding Doonesbury either in print or on line.

So no, I don't think Doonesbury is going too far. If others do, they will complain, as they have done in the past, and papers will either cut the strip or move it to a page with more rational readership. But I'm not expecting any decline in popularity; quite the opposite, in fact.
