Quote of the Day (September 12, 2011)

Why ‘Doonesbury’ isn't in the Chicago Tribune this week
Geoff Brown, at the Chicago Tribune:
“This week we are not publishing ‘Doonesbury’ comic strips because they do not meet our standards of fairness. We are substituting another strip instead. The ‘Doonesbury’ strips refer to allegations purportedly contained in an as-yet-unreleased book about former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. The book is not yet available for verification or review by the Chicago Tribune. To be sure, ‘Doonesbury’ is a satirical cartoon, but the remarks are serious enough that we cannot publish the strip without more information, context and a response from Palin.”
