Letter: Herald cartoon confusing, not funny


I’m not sure what you are trying to say in its political cartoon in the Tuesday, Nov. 13, edition of the Herald. The cartoon shows the “Welcome to Evanston” sign changed to read “Welcome to Wellington,” as another sign states that polling stations are now closed.

Is this your reaction to both David and Mikal Welling being elected to the city council? Do you fear that the Welling family is taking too many local elected offices, with Wellings also on the school board and county commission?

Are you saying that the local electorate is dumb enough to elect anyone just because their name is Welling? Should we have voted instead for the two perverts who were running against the Wellings for the two city council seats?

Also, I thought cartoons were supposed to be funny.
