In her column on Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, who was suspended two games by the NFL after his arrest for domestic violence, Washington Post columnist Sally Jenkins criticized the light response to Rice's actions, asking how the league could justify "a two-game penalty for a running back going all Flintstone on his wife."
On Thursday, Jenkins's column provoked an impassioned response from one Post reader, who sent a letter to the editor defending Fred Flintstone against implicit charges of spousal abuse.
As Martin Kramer of Takoma Park, Maryland, wrote, "Fred Flintstone had his faults, but he loved and respected his wife Wilma, often referring to her as his queen."

Anyone with a few million dollars and a hankering to experience the Stone Age can now purchase Dick Clark's cave-like mansion in Malibu, Calif., which the legendary television host has recently put on the market, according to reports.
The property, which sits on a nearly 23-acre mountaintop site, is listed at $3.5 million, according to the Los Angeles Times. The paper describes the cavernous home as resembling "something out of The Flinstones."
The one-bedroom, two-bathroom house, where Clark lives with his wife Kari, boasts vaulted ceilings in the living and dining rooms, as well as two fireplaces and a wine cellar, reports the Times. It also features an unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean and other natural surroundings, according to the property listing.
