Here is the bollocks behind the Tribune's nutty decision:
[Geoff Brown, associate managing editor for features] said he might determine that a particular comic's content is offensive once or twice a year. "Some people claim it's censorship, but I call it editing," he said. "We don't allow our own reporters to write vulgarities, double-entendres or untruths, even in jest."Of course, Mr. Katt' observation in the third panel -- "All goons are idiots" -- is axiomatic. But this question remains: "Must all editors be humorless goons?"
He thought the "nut-crunch" joke was just vulgar.
It is so disappointing when the Tribune lives up to Neil Steinberg's sour caricature.
UPDATE A correspondent asks, "If the Trib doesn't allow 'vulgarities, double-entendres or untruths' how do they explain this headline?"
