Free Press didn't balance Doonesbury

The Mankato Free Press

---- — I find it interesting that The Free Press has chosen not to run Mallard Fillmore on a daily basis anymore because Doonesbury is no longer running a daily column.

Their reasoning, political imbalance. Just out of curiosity, I wonder how many years Doonesbury ran "unopposed" in The Free Press? They didn't seem to mind the imbalance then.

Fittingly, the notification appeared in the April 1 edition of the paper. Maybe it was just an April Fool's joke.
