Editor:

[“The Life of Lila”] is a very funny cartoon and I enjoy reading this daily. I would hate to see its creators curtailed because someone was offended at its content and made analogies to Hitler and Mel Gibson (“Not funny,” Letters to the Editor, Sept. 25).

Frankly, I thought that was a bit of a stretch and, unlike the reader who complained that others would take from the cartoon that all Jews are liars and cheaters, I took from it that Lila, a fictional character, likes to stretch the truth if it is to her advantage.

I regret that you had to “regret” publishing that cartoon. What next, women getting offended at the portrayal of this “ditsy” character?

Lighten up.
