Censorship and Cartoons

Everybody has an opinion. I guess I do, too.

I think we need to be wary of extremes as well as censorship. George Bernard Shaw said, “Assassination is the extreme form of censorship.” Threats are pretty extreme, too.

John Leo, U.S. News and World Report columnist, discusses the Muslim cartoon controversy, warning about “the danger of censorship through fear.” The United States must keep the press free.
