Letter: Thatcher cartoon offended

I found your editorial “cartoon” of Mrs. Thatcher at the gates of heaven (April 11) to be in very poor taste. I do not have strong feelings one way or another about Mrs. Thatcher, but refraining from speaking ill of the dead is basic human decency.

You needn’t worry that we might miss the political leanings of the editorial staff; we get it. But it would be nice if you could show a little more civility.
