I want to echo the sentiments of [the writer of] " ‘Baldo’ comic a low for Stripes," (letter, Oct. 27).

I usually am not compelled to comment on what is printed, as I do know times are changing and more and more we see the values of society slipping.

But when I saw the "Baldo" comic with this girl dressed so poorly and posting pictures of herself on the Internet, I wondered if I would be the only one to think this was wrong.

These papers end up in our homes and viewed by our children. I don’t want my two young daughters thinking that this is the norm and acceptable behavior. I do realize that your paper is not run by the government, but government workers are your key audience.

On American Forces Network we are constantly being bombarded with commercials about being careful of what we post on the Internet, as it can affect us or our families sometime down the road as well as the threat of Internet predators. This comic is in poor taste.

Bottom line is, that comic strip had no business being in the Sunday papers or any other daily paper.

I want to applaud the letter writer for her thoughts, and for letting me know I wasn’t alone.
