Re Matt Wuerker editorial cartoon (Viewpoints, Nov. 20): As a nation, we are hopelessly divided and having more trouble with civil discourse as each day goes by. Cartoons like the one titled "Getting ready for Thanksgiving at the Cheneys" do nothing but widen that divide. You have a right to publish whatever you wish, but this cartoon is tasteless and unnecessary. I do not always agree with the viewpoints expressed in your editorials but I continue to read your paper because I want all viewpoints when considering current issues. What your readers see in The Bee could go a long way toward responsible and meaningful journalism that helps us heal. We don't need blogger trash in our mainstream media.
