A letter-writer was upset about the Dec. 8 Doonesbury cartoon. He didn't think rape was an appropriate topic for the Sunday comics. The cartoon could be summarized as a female soldier working within the military chain of command and trying to report a rape to her commanding officer who happened to be the rapist. Is that funny? No! Was it meant to be funny? Probably not! It was a satirical comment on a serious problem the Pentagon is struggling to fix and not having much luck.
