    I am an Oklahoman, an educator, and a woman. I find this comic offensive from all of these viewpoints.

    Well said. I understand Mr. Rall’s attempt at satire. He should also understand and have some respect for the teachers who would gladly have given their lives for their students, and yet still feel guilty because some of their students perished.

    Ted is one of the few cartoonists that can offend everyone at once.

    One can do that when not bound by good taste.

    High 5 Ted !

    Of course. It’s not possible to shield someone
    from a class 5 tornado. Or a class 4. The
    children who died in the basement or
    crawlspace apparently died from
    drowning, not from the tornado itself.
    And I would assume the teacher was
    shielding the students from flying debris.
    Whether she was trying to do just that,
    or trying to “save them from a class 5
    tornado”, that is what she most likely
    accomplished, at great risk to herself.
    Flying debris is the cause of most
    tornado casualties .

    And the libs like to call conservatives cruel. Folks, this is just the truth leaking out.

    I totally have respect for those teachers. But I can’t countenance those ridiculous lies that inevitably follow stories like this.

    Good taste should not be something editorial cartoonists care about.

    Yes. But MSNBC and other networks claimed that the teacher saved their lives. This is clearly not true.

    If the media had simply stuck to the truth – teachers comforted and tried to protect their students during the tornado – that would have been fine. But they always have to go over-the-top.

    @Ted Rall

    If a teacher shielding a child took the brunt of a piece of shrapnel that would have killed a smaller person, could we not entertain the possibility that the teacher saved a life?

    @bueller

    I read one report that the children died of drowning, but the official verdict of the ME’s office was death by “mechanical asphyxia.”
