The cruise article is great. Thanks for sharing. I imagine that got a bit hairy.

Apart from the obvious observation that the comic sounds like a legit critique of people using religion and god for their own goals and banning it is an attack on freedom of speech (well, what Jordan has left of that freedom), why hasn't an UK paper also published the actual cartoon? Is the Independent worried that they could be sued in the UK for that?

Great links once again.

I was not going to include that one until I read the hairy bits of it. That made me laugh. The actual cruise took place months ago and I did not see why it was relevant now.

You know, I did not think about that. I bet that is the case.
