Your Danish Cartoons Hangover Update

* Joe Gordon at Forbidden Planet unearths the fact that those at Cambridge's Clare College involved with reprinting one of the Jyllands-Posten cartoons in a satirical magazine issue were questioned by police. A file has been passed along which may result in prosecution. I agree with Gordon that this seems extremely heavy-handed.

* I Am More Beautiful Than Joseph

* I'm not hearing anything new about the trial of Abdul Mahid, the fourth protester of the Danish cartoons to be prosecuted in London courts. I shudder to think that it's because the press is now inured to such events. We could see a decision today or tomorrow, if I'm judging it right.
