Editors of the Saturday Washington Post's Free for All section published three angry missives from readers wishing to censor the conservative-leaning cartoon strip Prickly City.

Under the header, "A strip too political for the comics," Brad Knopf of Annapolis, Md., and Silver Spring, Md., residents George Usher and Rodney Brooks complained about recent panels of the Scott Stantis cartoon. Knopf groused that Stantis's joke in one strip "could get you arrested" while Brooks melodramatically blustered that Stantis's work was "close to treason or rebellion."
