The Meaning of Lila

The Meaning of Lila


Your Lila comic on Sept. 23 has Lila on a Jewish dating site and one friend says, “But you‚Äôre not Jewish.” Lila answers and says, “So, I‚Äôll stretch the truth already. Is that so wrong?” Her other pal says, “Maybe she is Jewish.”

The implication here is that Jews are all liars and cheats. Ha, ha. This may be funny to Hitler, or Mel Gibson, but I hope most people would find this offensive. I’m shocked your paper printed this racist garbage.
