To the editor:

Isn’t it time for your paper to rid itself of “Derf” and his “comic” the City? Isn’t there quite enough hate in this world without having him adding babies, parents and would-be mothers to his long list of people to despise [September 15]? His emotional level is embarrassing, his humor the sort of thing ex-Senator Packwood might giggle at (and then deny it). It’s enough to drive an old leftie back to the Church. (Is that what he’s aiming at?)
