Taking Comics Raw

I have noticed that some people have been picking on The Tech's new comic, "Red Meat." I recently came upon this comic, and it is by far the best comic I have read in my four years here at MIT. Enough of vapid space-filling drivel; "Red Meat" is the first comic to break the monosyllabic barrier. If I can tolerate "Jim's Journal" for four years, people can endure "Red Meat" for a few more. Heck, they might even learn a few words. (I'll buy them a dictionary if I have to.)

"Red Meat" is harsh, and not everyone will like it, yet it has sophistication that greatly enhances sometimes sparse reading material. So please leave the meat of the paper alone, and I will take my comics raw.
