There was an editorial cartoon in today's "Tribune" which really made me mad. It was a "take off" of the Beatles' Abbey Road album. It showed four donkey's dressed as John, Paul, George and Ringo with the caption reading "Crabby Road". They were headed toward a sign which read "leaving DC" and the donkeys had @#%$& type symbols over their heads.

Each of our Indiana Democrat candidates posted statements on Facebook and sent emails thanking their supporters. They all said they had done their best and appreciated what everyone had done for them. This is what is known as class.

I know this is just a silly cartoon but the author, Jerry Holbert, obviously felt that this was the general mood of our candidates. I don't know where Mr. Holbert lives, this may have been written thousands of miles away but our local newspaper agreed with him. This is just plain wrong.
