Just as Gross




The comic strip by Mielke from your Sept. 16 issue is perfect. How innocently the two scenarios are juxtaposed ... just like in real life! Every time I have a cynical thought about the inherent denials in so many of our beliefs -- how about abortion foes who set mouse traps? -- I realize that nobody wants to listen to my long expositions comparing one "unacceptable" practice with an everyday act whose equivalence most people would angrily deny. The succinct wit of a graphic like Mielke's is all that is needed.

That said, I agree with your letter-writers last week that the cover photo in question ("Hooked," Sept. 9) was repulsive ... but a graphic close-up of an all-American dinner plate would be just as bad.
