* A few months ago I sent a letter to The Philadelphia Inquirer in response to a Tony Auth cartoon they printed deriding intelligent design. I also saw a recent letter in the Inquirer from a writer of Jewish affiliation in which he expressed his dismay that the newspaper would feature Auth's cartoon depicting the Catholic clergy as amoral buffoons.
It might be appropriate if the editors of NCR would share this Jewish man's disgust with Auth's religion-bashing. NCR appears to be admiring Auth by printing his cartoons in your publication. I recently renewed my subscription to NCR because I decided that your paper is more good than bad and I do look forward to reading most of your issues. But if a supposedly Catholic publication regards the likes of Auth as one to be held up for admiration, I hope that you will at least draw the line at expressing admiration for the American Atheist society.
