‘Baby Blues’ comic too racy for Deseret News?


A Romenesko reader writes: “On Sunday, The Salt Lake Tribune’s comics section ran a ‘Baby Blues’ with ‘The Natural Order of Things: Love, Lust and Laundry.’ The Deseret News instead ran one where Zoe wrote to the Tooth Fairy about forgetting to pick up her tooth and leave some money. I guess LUST was too much for the family-friendly Deseret News.” I’ve asked News features editor Aaron Shill about the substitution.
