Dan Piraro’s Double-Caption Detour

According to this newspaper report, the cartoonist Dan Piraro submitted a provocative and a safe caption to a recent cartoon (the provocative one castigated laws that do not recognize same-sex partners in terms of hospital rights), and then when his syndicate's service bureau got a hold of it, an editor's choice went out the window and one caption went to the color cartoon, one to the black and white, so people still got mad at Piraro.
