The Buzz


Demeaning others is not humor

I take exception to "The Buzz" column -- usually, but especially last Thursday's headlined "Birther of a nation." Casting aspersions on another person's character, or lack thereof -- is not humor. Referring to Donald Trump as a "reality show pimp" and calling him morally bankrupt is certainly beyond your purview. In a recent column Gov. Chris Christie was subject to demeaning remarks about his weight -- anyone truly funny never resorts to these tactics.
On the whole, I find your column offensive.
