RE SIGNE Wilkinson's Jan. 11 "cartoon": However unlikely it may be that the Daily News or Ms. Wilkinson is interested in facts, I will trouble myself with an attempt to bring clarity into her aberrant view of the Tucson, Ariz., shooting. In her "cartoon," Ms. W. alludes to political discourse being strangely related to firearms. But the Tucson event had absolutely nothing to do in any manner to politics. The shooter is a well-known psychopath who, unfortunately at the time of his gun purchase, was without a criminal record.

AS A BLACK citizen of Philadelphia, I was appalled by Signe Wilkinson's cartoon on murders and Black History Month. The gall of it all is that she has two black people saying the punch line about the deaths. But, if anything, we'd be praying. This is a very racist statement. If this was your race, how would you feel? Blacks weren't the only people killed in January. You have killings in the white race but keep it hush-hush. Are you that afraid of black people? Think sometimes before printing.

There was George Bush, American flag fluttering on his desk, declaiming to the populace, "I am your father who art in the White House! Hollow be my name. " And there was Signe Wilkinson, the Daily News political cartoonist whose deft satirical touch has bushwhacked Bush on many another occasion, with champagne dripping from her hair. For just the kind of biting bitchiness displayed in the first panel of yesterday's political cartoon, one concerning Bush and abortion, this impertinent Quaker with a scalpel for a pen who is really a very nice lady, won the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning.

CONGRATULATIONS to Joseph Vento of Geno's Steaks, a true American who has the backbone to take a stand and say what much of the general public and many spineless politicians really think but are too cowardly to speak up about. And Signe Wilkinson's attempt at mocking "South Philly Cheesesteaks" would be lame if it weren't so pathetic. Phooey for phony cartoonists! Hooray for the English language! Applause for Joseph Vento!

THIS IS one of the days on which I suffer embarrassment in identifying myself as a registered Republican, as the Pennsylvania General Assembly is up to its old tricks with the GOP solely to blame this time. I had the benefit of attending excellent Pittsburgh public schools, staffed by qualified, exceptional teachers. I would have been puzzled and dismayed as a child if my mother had ever told me that the opening of our schools was in doubt or that there might have to be massive layoffs to balance the budget for education.

THANKS to Signe Wilkinson and the Daily News for the "Butt Ugly" editorial/cartoon. As a better-than-thou moralist from childhood, I have remonstrated dropped-butt perpetrators in public more than once. For example: "Oh, sir - I think you dropped this!" in a loud but respectful tone of voice. More than 50 years ago I was a young smoker and acted like these dropped-butt types. Luckily I quit in five years but would have appreciated receiving such a remonstrance - I'm certain I'd have quit sooner.

ALTHOUGH we at IBEW Local 98 appreciate Signe Wilkinson highlighting our newly created Rat-Mobile in a political cartoon, she missed a key point in the narrative. Rather than depicting unions as distributing political contributions - a tired old cliche - Signe should have depicted us doing the city's job: Collecting unpaid taxes, permit fees and license fees from unscrupulous developers and contractors. Exposing these cheats in order to help our cash-strapped city collect desperately needed revenue is our mission.

THIS IS a letter in regards to just about everything that is going on in our lives today and what I've been reading in the paper, like a baby found in a cardboard box, and how a man dressed as Santa killed himself and six others. Also, how we experienced an earthquake. I am 57 years old and can't remember when I have felt that. It scares me to think about all that is going on in this world today. I believe in my heart that we need to bow our heads and thank God everyday that we open our eyes.

IN RESPONSE to state Sen. Vince Hughes' op-ed piece on an extraction tax in the Marcellus Shale region, I have one question for him which he probably won't dignify with a response. Why didn't the state Legislature under Ed Rendell impose an extraction tax on gas companies when the Democrats had control of the governor's house and the state Legislature for two years? My theory is that both sides were readily taking campaign contributions and didn't have a problem with it at the time.

Signe Wilkinson can't help but sketch. She stands at her tilted drawing board, which is illuminated by a spotlight, and answers questions as her hand purposefully glides over the paper. She's talking about her new comic strip, Penn's Place , which debuts Sunday in The Inquirer. It is set in Philadelphia, on a fictional city block, where main character Hannah Penn has recently moved. "It's a block that no one actually knows, but everyone will have felt like they've passed it, in one way or another," Wilkinson says.
