Dear Editor,

In the cartoon of Monday, August 27, I saw a couple dancing and I thought it disrespectful, although overall the cartoon was funny.

My own children and others do not need that staring them in the face. Besides being a national newspaper, the Jamaica Observer is also a family paper and must take into consideration such matters.
