Rep’s Injuries Are No Laughing Matter

I am appalled that you would make light of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’s recovery in your Purim spoof section (“Gabby Giffords Recovering, Developing New Powers,” March 18).

What were you thinking? Bad taste does not begin to describe your use of her injuries as material for a joke.
