Eventually mass murder in Paris, Hebdo.. then:

"Charlie Hebdo cartoonist "Luz", who designed the front page of the magazine that appeared after the Paris attacks, has said he will no longer draw the Prophet Muhammad."

When it comes to standing up for our basic values (drawing a cartoon of whomever you please), or rolling over and letting murderous intimidation change us, I don't think we should follow the French model...

I prefer Texan bikers and attention whores, no matter how crass.
