Publisher of McClatchy's Rock Hill Herald upset at cartoon which depicted auto industry logos on a turkey

Rock Hill Herald publisher Debbie Abels needs to get a grip. Romenesko reports:
Debbie Abels says the cartoon, which depicted domestic auto companies' logos on a turkey, "was not appropriate, in my opinion." She adds: "Beginning today, we have a process in place to ensure cartoons are viewed by more than one person prior to publication. ...By having several pairs of eyes previewing cartoons, we'll be in a better position to determine what is appropriate caricature and humor, and what crosses a very fine line."
Click here for the letter from Debbie Abels. I searched the Herald's web site and couldn't find a copy of the cartoon -- if you can locate it, send it to me and I'll print it.
