Wow, despite the disclaimer that “Views expressed are those of the authors or artists,” I am beginning to think that you should re-label the Trib as a left-wing rag. You publish Beydler as a guest way too often to have anyone believe that you simply chose his opinion to print from the many you received. Beydler’s left wing rants have been published by the Trib on many topics; print the other point of view for a change. Beydler seems to epitomize the aging hippie who misses the rock concert, free love, “pass the reefer” quasi-social experiment that passed away in the ‘70s. Some of us got a real job and grew up to resent the parasites and cry-babies that make up the Occupy nitwits.
If you agree with Beydler and the Wolverton cartoon, change the name of the paper. If you are trying to show both sides of an issue, print point/counterpoints, pros and cons together on the opinion page.
