"Cover Story" piece on two Casco Bay Weekly (CBW) cartoons that have incited a backlash from the Portland community. Nearly 40 people gathered outside CBW's Portland office March 14 to protest a pair of cartoons the paper ran in its Feb. 22 and March 8 editions. The two-part cartoon, by Martin Shields, is called "Chef Al's Fowl" and depicts an apparently deranged man killing, boiling and marinating a naked woman. Shields, who has been doing comic strips for CBW since 1998, claims he designed the cartoon to provoke just such a response. With comments by several academic experts, including Professors William Coogan and Nancy Gish of the University of Southern Maine, among others.
