The Projo Deserves An Apology those of us who “saddened” it by lamenting that its cartoon of Gordon Fox as a shoe-shine boy might have racist undertones. From the AP:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The Providence Journal says it’s “saddened” some readers have been offended by an editorial cartoon depicting a mixed-race Rhode Island lawmaker as a shoeshine boy….

The newspaper on Thursday stopped short of an apology, but explained the cartoonist, Jim Bush, did not mean to refer to Fox’s ancestry.

We have no reason to doubt Bush’s sincerity, and hope the newspaper cheers up soon.  This weather sure can’t be helping.  Chin up, Projo!
