Download File > Saturday 10/25/2008, 11:00 a.m. & 4:00 p.m., KSCO 1080 AM>> An Open Letter to Metro Santa Cruz. Here is Kay Zwerling: >> They say words have meanings. I believe it. They say also a picture is > worth 1000 words, and I believe that, too.>> Imagine then the millions of words that came to mind when I first > gazed upon the cover illustration of the 10-22-2008 of Metro Santa > Cruz, the weekly. This cover featured an illustration of Barack Obama > sporting a toothy winning grin and a colorful Superman-like costume. > The Obama caricature stood astride a black-and-white line drawing of > Santa Cruz in the foreground, America in the background, and everyone > locally and nationally crying out ?Help ? Fair enough. Our candidate > is here to help, with hope for a change as the campaign touts.>> Now, what captured the attention of all those who called our attention > to this picture is that Superman Obama is standing hands on hips with > one colorful boot squashing the Santa Cruz Sentinel, and the other > colorful boot squashing your local radio station KSCO. But wait, there > firmly affixed to the squashed KSCO is a Nazi swastica, and therein > lies the reason a million words flooded my mind at the sight of that > cover graphic. You see, as a Jewess who lost family members to Nazi > concentration camps, I am all too aware of the significance of > jack-booted caricatures bearing swasticas. To cope, I closed my mind > off to the millions of words that want to cry out and turn instead to > our friends at Metro Santa Cruz to ask ?Why? Why did you affix a > swastica to the squashed KSCO on the cover of your newspaper?? Is > Metro Santa Cruz telling us that a victorious Obama is going to squash > all political dissent like the Nazis squashed the Jews? If this is > what Metro Santa Cruz is telling us, we ask what happened to the > liberal ideals of inclusiveness, non-judgmentalism, diversity? Words > do have meaning, and pictures are worth 1000 words, and I am Kay > Zwerling.
