Cartoons and Extremists

September 8th, 2009 by klg008

Today I was reading a story on how Yale University decided not to run cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad in the book “The Cartoons that Shook the World.” They made the decision because they feared it would cause  “another outbreak of violence.” There are a few alumni of Yale that disagree with the decison of the University.”I think it’s horrifying that the campus of Nathan Hale has become the first place where America surrenders to this kind of fear because of what extremists might possibly do,” said Michael Steinberg, an attorney and Yale graduate. Twenty-five alumni signed a petition on Friday to restore the cartoons.

I agree that they should put the cartoons back in the book. The title of the book is perfect for what these particular cartoons did, they shook the world. I also think that Yale should not be afraid of what “could happen.” The day we start fearing what to put in the press is the day we lose our freedom of speech.

    Good comments, Kacie. There’s an old saying: Better to die on your feet than live on your knees. That seems appropriate for this situation.

    For some reason the template you’ve chosen reminds me of The X-Files. Am I imagining things?
