Ted Rall for March 29, 2008
Editors: This cartoon contains subject matter that some readers may consider sensitive. Cultural news from the western world. To stand up for press freedom, every publication in the Western world will print the Danish Mohammad cartoons on every page. Every day. In color. Begins April 1. In Muslim areas, McDonald's franchises will offer 3-D plush toys based on the Danish Mohammad cartoons. Released in conjunction with the new Rushdie film. Western schools will require that children study the new version of the Koran. (Also in Audiobook and Kindle formats.) An interactive installation sculpture of the Prophet Mohammad's head repeatedly being shot out of a cannon will tour major cities. We can, because we're free!
