The Tsongas Cartoon

Editors' note: The cartoon's parody of the double consonants in Mr. Tson-gas's name picked up on the Tsongas campaign's use of the slogan, "Tsouth for the Tsongas." On our inquiry, a campaign spokesman assured the Monitor that no offense had been taken and that the campaign was issuing T-shirts and buttons reading "Tcitizens for Tsongas." To the best of our knowledge, Mr. Tsongas does not have a speech impediment, only a pronounced New England accent and a highly individual manner of speaking. Nonetheles s, given the response, our cartoonist's aim might have been better.
