    LA must be reading the replies to his comic strip: regarding the reference to the question, “‘Why don’t YOU take some in YOUR home!?’” And, just wondering, why would anyone say, “’I’M GONNA KILL YOU!’” I must be missing something here…

    Lalo is referring to the death threats against Mark Lane in San Diego (see the bottom right of the second panel), who has received death threats after deciding to host a Guatemalan refugee family and urging a boycott of Murrieta. Here’s a news report on the story:

    So, since Lalo is impressed and salutes this situation, how many kids has Lalo now offered to take in?
    And perhaps he would like to be even more compassionate and champion kids from at least a dozen countries around the world with equally bad political situations.
    Then there are the kids who are starving in Africa, and I’m sure many other examples.
    Or is Lalo only interested in HIS PEOPLE?
    And speaking of children, isn’t this strip a bit severe for the younger audience that will come across it in newspapers?

    Well, I see you toned down your post from the one you took down, indie. Which is good, since it was so shouty. I find it curious that La Cucaracha drives you to such apoplexy that you make posts that even you regret and delete later. There’s something really clouding your judgement about this strip. Did Lalo run over your dog or something?
    As for your tiresomely repetitive questions, really, what’s it to you? How many would he need to take in to satisfy Your Highness? And how many people have you actively helped out this week, and in what ways? Specifics will do quite nicely. What is it exactly you do when you’re not single-mindedly bashing this strip? Why are you only interested in hating on one comic artist when there is a whole universe of them to be hated on?
    As to children reading comic strips, that’s something parents will have to consider for themselves. Compared to the content children are exposed to on television and the internet, this is tame, tame, tame. It’s not all Ziggy and Leave it to Beaver out there, you know.
