Letter: Horsey cartoon requires apology

Our family lived in the F-M area for five years and moved back to the Seattle area last year. However, I still read Inforum online daily because of how the news is reported.

I’m shocked and appalled after running across David Horsey’s cartoon on Page A4 of the Forum dated Saturday, Dec. 29. What was this comic supposed to depict? It appears Horsey is saying that all teenage boys who are introverted will be mass killers. I hope that is not his intention.

However, it appears that way from the cartoon.

This was not the way to portray parents who don’t notice signs of their young boys feeling excluded. This type of material, if you can call it that, is nothing I would expect from a classy paper like The Forum. Please do the right thing and apologize for printing this cartoon.
