This Week’s Cartoon: “Keepin’ Em Straight Through Grade Eight!”

I’m linking to the comic on Daily Kos this week — today was its debut. I heartily encourage you, esteemed reader, to follow Daily Kos Comics, and even better, join the site and post comments!

For more on the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, this editorial opposing it in the Knoxville News Sentinel is worth a read. It makes a nice point about how that newspaper would not be allowed in schools because it runs Doonesbury, which has a gay character. (Not to mention the newspaper said the word “gay!”)
