Cartoon Demeaning To Civil Rights Icon

Editor, News-Register:

I object to the cartoon on the Editorial page on Jan. 18 in The Intelligencer, demeaning Representative John Lewis of Georgia.  John Lewis is an icon of the civil rights movement.  You can read about him in his graphic three-book series, “March,” about his part in the struggle for voting rights in Alabama.  The editorial staff of The Intelligencer should know better.
