Online commenting: What perception?

Came across this one on Google+ the other day; As great as online comments are at creating a fostering a community of opinionated readers, there's still those who view it as a bane of online news presentation. I guess it's all in how it's presented ....

Remembering Lee

Sanderson Reformer cartoon

The above editorial cartoon was created by Lee Sanderson in 2007. I was saddened last week to learn of Lee’s sudden death on July 3. For several years, his cartoons appeared weekly (or, sometimes, more often) in the Reformer. After budget constraints forced me to pull back on his regular contributions, his work also appeared in the local weekly The Commons for a while.

Lee's creative take on local issues, ideas and people was a highlight of the Weekend Reformer. While he had not
drawn for the Reformer in many years, hit artistic ability and wit will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family.

P.S. This might explain why I'm so careful when it comes to blogging, texting and posting.

"Editors are sort of human, too!"

Returned to the office to find a couple of e-mails and a copy of this Peanuts comic strip (re-printed April 8) on my desk. Much love to Mr. Schulz:
