Continuing Cartoon Conflagration

I sometimes forget that everywhere isn't like America. Freedom of the press is fundamental to what this country is, and I take it as a sine qua non of free society. Not all societies are free. And due to some cartoons, some think our freedom should be stifled to protect their pride.

Tough. Deal. And please, come up with a better way of expressing your displeasure than killing people. If you don't like what a paper publishes, you don't buy the paper. That isn't a panacea, but it will get you a better reputation around the world.

And maybe, just maybe, if you don't let the crazy people be your spokesmen, you won't be the subject of political cartoons. Even us Protestants are still working on that one.
