Your Danish Cartoons Hangover Update

* if someone out there isn't typing a screenplay right now about dueling soccer moms turned competitive jihadists, I'll eat my hat. This matter of blond Americans teasing with movements that are seeking out artists like Lars Wilks is only tangentially related to the original Danish Cartoons Controversy, but boy is it odd.

* speaking of Wilks, the newspapers that reprinted his cartoon as news of an assassination plot was revealed are circling the wagons. The thought that they would print the cartoons but not run them on-line is interesting.

* the reaction to Terry Mosher's latest cartoon shows just how strangulated the controversy has made just about any cartoon expression of an issue regarding Muslim culture, no matter what you think of this one.
