As regular readers know, our editorial staff works long hours, and takes great pains, in order to offend as often as possible. Herewith, then, an editorial cartoon described as follows by the Associated Press:
This cartoon image provided by the New York Post appeared in the Post's Page Six Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2009. The cartoon, which refers to Travis the chimp, who was shot to death by police in Stamford, Conn. on Monday after it mauled a friend of its owner, drew criticism Wednesday on media Web sites and from civil rights activist the Rev. Al Sharpton.
That's good enough for us.
