Voter-ID laws

Political cartoon made no sense

I just read your political cartoon in Saturday’s newspaper. [Cartoon by Drew Sheneman, Opinion, Aug. 31.]

This has to be the most ludicrous cartoon I’ve ever seen.

You must show positive ID to cash a check or use your debit card.

You must show positive ID to purchase tobacco products or alcoholic beverages.

You must show positive ID to board an airplane.

Yet somehow it’s wrong to require people to show ID to vote for people that will be running the most powerful country in the world, people that may have their finger on the most powerful weapons in the world.

This makes absolutely no sense to me at all!
