Domestic violence no laughing matter [Letter]

September 02, 2014

I found it very interesting that in an edition of your newspaper reporting the NFL's very strong domestic violence policy and the Baltimore Ravens' very generous contribution to the House of Ruth in support of victims of domestic violence, the comics reveal a different point of view.

In the comic strip, "The Middletons," the husband makes a less than sensitive comment about his wife and her response is violence! It is not OK for a person (male or female) to hit another person over words or other non-life threatening events. Men shouldn't hit women and women should not hit men. Is the next comic going to show Mr. Middleton decking his wife for her lousy cooking? This is not funny!
