On Wednesday, May 27, the editorial page "cartoon" was definitely not funny and actually was very offensive. The "cartoon" depicts a school supply store selling guns and ammunition, rather than paper, pencils and books as we would expect. What kind of message is this giving our Utah school students?

Since we expect the Deseret newspaper to be on the side of right and good, I hope your staff will better screen objectionable materials and refrain from publishing them in our family newspaper.Ila M. Nelson
