Doonesbury cartoons

The cartoon Doonesbury is not being run in many newspapers this week, including my own, because of language that would apparently offend readers.  You know, phrases like "transvaginal probe."  It's okay to pass a law requiring that women getting abortions have one, but you wouldn't want to offend people by using it in a cartoon, even a cartoon  posted on the editorial page.  That would probably ruin breakfast, wouldn't it?

Click here to see the censured cartoon.  (If you click here after the week of March 12, you'll have to scroll backwards to that date.)
