I didn’t even know we HAD a “letters to the editor department!”

Dear Mr. Panda,

I am writing in protest of your recent cartoon. (Pandas mourn death of Maurice Sendak)  It is my feeling that you are exploiting the death of noted children’s book author and illustrator, Maurice Sendak, for the express purpose of allowing the panda kindergarten to run amok.

As a member of SCCWI (Society of Cartoon Cats of Whidbey Island) I must also take exception to the cavalier treatment of your feline characters.

Furthermore, I do NOT believe that “rumpus” is a verb.  This is a blatant example of the verbification of nouns, and will not be tolerated.  I am considering suspending my subscription to your publication.
