It's time to take the funny back

Newspapers and other outlets across the country (a country which still has the tattered remnants of a Constitution by the way) are declining to run two installments of Berkley Breathed's Opus strip due to content that may offend Muslims.

When did "may offend Muslims" become the euphemism for "will probably give psychos an excuse to riot, kill and blow stuff up"? Wait...Oh, yeah, I forgot. Call it what you want: Prudence, respect or is just censorship in coward's clothing.

Everyone with an internet connection should visit Salon on August 26th and September 2nd for the full Opus strips just to show all those newspapers how much ad revenue they lost over their decision. Even the worst of cowards gains a back bone once they get hit in the wallet.
