Your Daily Danish Cartoons Update
* I think this will be the last one on a focused, daily basis, unless renewed violence starts another cycle.
* The following are links to news of protests, political developments, economic boycotts, cartoonist reaction and editorial decision-making that can be linked back to Denmark's Jyllands-Posten
newspaper publishing 12 cartoons
featuring the Prophet Muhammed last Fall.
* We've officially moved into the lengthy, general analysis phase.
* Mike Rhode sends interesting word that while Ruben Bolling did effective strip in Tom the Dancing Bug
on both the Danish Cartoons Controversy
and the other politically charged publishing issue of the month, the Tom Toles vs. the Pentagon
affair, both cartoons may have been underpublished in their usual, traditional outlets.
* There's some interesting political stuff today, kicking off with the European Union foreign ministers haggling over
what should be in the EU statement on the affair. Nigerian governors condemn their recent riots
. Looks like there will be a conference
in Denmark for people to do a post-mortem. There's already one going on
* If I didn't generally like Wiley Miller's work, Paper Apologizes for Publishing Non Sequitur Cartoon
would write its own joke. In other publication news, Michigan is late to the party
with the whole school paper publishing the cartoons thing.
* Profile of Amitai Sandy and Eyal Zusman
and their anti-Semitic cartoon contest.
