Sir: How sad that the onslaught of political correctness is affecting cartoons, which have always been a medium for humour and satire ('Disney censors lyric after Arabs carpet Aladdin', 23 November).

Those who have complained should heed the words of the early Babylonian saying: 'The man who cannot laugh at himself will never judge others fairly.'

Let us hope that the Irish, Scots and English, too, do not become equally touchy, or there will be precious little to joke about in any medium, including cinema, theatre, press, radio and TV. Then we will all stop laughing.

Yours faithfully,


Leominster, Herefordshire
