In response to the July 1, 2012 issue

It was with shock and disbelief that I stared at the “finger” sketch. I find it—as well as an earlier drawing of an elephant head imposed on female reproductive organs [April 1]—inappropriate for an adult audience, let alone teenagers. You see, in an effort to broaden the perspective of newsletters in our high school library, I have provided a subscription for the Spectator for a couple of years now. I am writing to cancel that subscription. Do you really think readership is improved by providing cartoon sketches like this?
