Shame on The News for censoring the "Boondocks" comic strip last week without explanation. I hunted it down on the Internet and found many other newspapers had the backbone to publish the story line, which was about the truth behind the Santa Claus "machine." Oooh, scary. I've seen more controversial topics on the comics pages. After all, The News publishes "B.C.," no matter how evangelistic it gets. The News knew this strip was controversial when it picked it up, so stick to your principles and publish it.
