Flemming Rose, the Danish editor who first made the decision to publish those cartoons a few months ago, has written an article explaining why he did it.

Most of what he says makes sense, I suppose, if you're into that whole freedom of the press crap. But then he turns around and says that while he saw no problem running those cartoons, he would never agree to publish pornography. That's the same argument many other newspaper editors made: No problem with the cartoons, but we would never print pornography.

No pornography!?!?! No wonder newspaper circulation figures are falling!
