Your Irregular Danish Cartoons Update

* It's died down a bit, but it hasn't gone away. Over 50,000 in new protests over the weekend in Turkey and Pakistan. Hope no one tried blogging about it in Pakistan. Plus, the celebrity dis-endorsements continue. It looks like there was some sort of support rally in New York City.
