The Tsongas cartoon

Did you receive only negative letters about Jeff Danziger's cartoon "Tsongas Pronunciation Guide (a random tsample)," March 5?

The writers of the letters in the March 23 letters column obviously missed the point of this very clever cartoon, or they would never have seen it as caricaturing or ridiculing a "speech impediment."

There is no evidence whatsoever of such ridicule in the cartoon, just as there is no evidence of such a characteristic in Mr. Tsongas himself. Carolyn Kavanagh, Des Plaines, Ill.
