Cheers to Garry Trudeau for his sharp Doonesbury comic strip last week, satirizing the Texas' mandatory transvaginal exams for women seeking an abortion.
Jeers to all the newspapers that censored the strip or, like the LA Times, moved it to the Op-Ed page.
In case you missed it, here's the first one. Check out the entire week's series here and send it out to everyone you know.
