    I wonder if the FCC, when they get their internet neutrality passed, will allow editorial cartoons.

    Stereotype? You mean the pigeon english in the second word balloon? I don’t think it’s a slur anymore than when I lampoon a Southern drawl , an Irish brogue or a Mexican speaking English- it’s dialectical humor. I suppose you would have me use nothing but the king’s english for all characters in my cartoons. Sorry, I don’t cotton to political correctness and certainly won’t employ it in my cartoons.

    Haha Robert Arial.

    I have personally heard some Asian friends speak that way, and dont find that Robert Ariail is coming off in an offensive way. Its a distinguishing factor bewtween races and another way that each of us is unique. Imagine how some of us from America sound speaking a foreign language.

    I think the toon is hilarious Robert Ariail. Peace.

    And on second thought, if it concerned the internet, the more correct impression would not be Reagan or Clinton but rather “internet inventor” Al Gore, would it not?
