Cartoon Blues

More rioting in Beiruit and Syria:
"Muslim rage over caricatures of the prophet Muhammad grew increasingly violent Sunday as thousands of rampaging protesters — undaunted by tear gas and water cannons — torched the Danish mission and ransacked a Christian neighborhood."

Why can't people make distinctions anymore? How do you equate a Christian missionary service, or Christianity in general, with a newspaper in another country? What has happened to nuance?

Here's one bit of good news:
"Muslim clerics denounced the violence, with some wading into the mobs trying to stop them."

Yes, yes- More of that!

No Muslims must have been watching Saturday Night Live a year or two ago when a Robert Smidgell cartoon featured a group of superheroes, lead by Jesus Christ, that included Bhuddha, Khrishna-and Muhammed. Guess that just goes to prove that nobody really cares about Saturday Night Live anymore.

Yeah, they could use the publicity too.

It's interesting too that I can hardly imagine rioting Buddhists.
