Dear Lynn Johnson:

If your comic strip were scripted by blind monkeys, it would be better than this. I think the best thing about today's strip is the underlying message it conveys. "Those lying cheating aboriginals, they're all the same. They should stick to their own kind." Way to strike a blow against stereotypes, there -- especially after all your patronizing glorification of aboriginal culture a couple of years ago, which now takes on the flavor of Liz Takes A Trip To The Museum. Not to mention that this development makes utter nonsense of the past year or more of the Liz-Paul relationship, in which he was doing all the pursuing and accommodating, including taking a transfer to Toronto (which he manifestly disliked) in order to be close to her.

My parents stopped reading FBOFW years ago after Lynn Johnson made a blasphemous remark in a CBC interview, and my mother wrote to her with her concerns (quite politely, I may add) only to get a snippy letter back. I think they had the right idea.

Disgustedly yours,
