i guess the lesson for the week is: don't draw pictures of Muhammed. has the world gone mad? ostensibly, the ban on depicting muhammed is to prevent idolatry. but isn't violently protesting a cartoon deifying its subject? isn't this tautology? now iran has cut off trade with denmark, and is sponsoring a contest for the best holocaust related cartoon. they have also formally rebuffed the IAEA, and abandoned russia's offer of exported uranium. i would say the glass is half-empty at this point.
