1. Note that the cartoonist, Pab Sungenis, actually has been exposed. Or rather, his husband was exposed and they don’t know yet whether he caught Covid-19. They’re techncally self-isolating rather than quarantined, but ….

  2. Thanks, Carl, I was wondering about that. I was assuming he had actually been exposed, because otherwise the comic seems in pretty poor taste; but I wasn’t sure.

  3. Mitch4: IIRC, your comment also had a sentence or two in it that have also disappeared, and all the disappeared stuff potentially led into [verboten issues]. So perhaps Bill manually censored it?

  4. I didn’t think you personally were engaging in political commentary. But I could see Bill would worry that just having the comic here would lead to a political discussion.

  5. No, thanks for reminding me. I had mostly forgotten what the cartoon and my fuller comment were when I saw and was puzzled by the somewhat opaque remainder of my comment; but reconstructed the memory with your help 🙂

  6. I never saw the comic that Mitch4 attached here, but I think it might be the same editorial cartoon that I submitted earlier in the week in an e-mail to Bill. His reply indicated that he didn’t think it would be appropriate for CIDU, but that he might post it to his Facebook page. I don’t know whether he actually did that, because I’ve been self-isolating from Facebook for several years now (I’ve found that this is one of the best ways to keep my sanity sanitized).
