Custard Eater?

Tim Murray's letter to the Arts editor in Sunday's P-G, complaining about a naked Beetle Bailey in the Sunday strip of a week ago, is a sure sign that Mr. Murray either takes his custard straight or that he possesses one of the best wits in the 'Burgh. Here's a sample:
I have long celebrated "Beetle Bailey's" creator, Mort Walker, not only as a comic genius on a par with Mark Twain and S.J. Perelman but also as a patriot and, therefore, presumably a good Protestant and Republican. I am therefore crestfallen to find him wallowing in the same cesspool as Larry Flynt.

Here's the offending strip.
