Ad Weak



I was shocked to open the most recent Journal (Feb. 20) to see an ad for Honest Engine that utilizes the head of a Native American on a coin; something that has nothing to do with car repair. Living during times when the controversial "stand your ground" law in Florida is constantly in the headlines, discussions of changing the "Redskins" to a more appropriate and less offensive name, and the fact that we live in an area surrounded by Native Americans I thought for sure our liberal local paper would screen ads a little bit better. Yes, I'm sure they paid for it but what message is this sending?
