Cartoons

Oh no! A cartoon with Hitler and Anne Frank in bed together! Nooooo!

---if you can't tell, that is sarcasm---

that was some of the retailation of that comic a few days ago. It kind of makes me laugh. If it was drawn well, and has a good message, all about it. That is the difference. I can take something supposidly taboo, and not care.

The guy on Good Morning America made a great point. All the time journalists and workers in the Middle East are held captive and beheaded and had their throats slit. But, Americans haven't charged an Embasy to destory it in protest. Yet, one simple cartoon made in sarcasm, to provoke people to prove a point, has caused hundreded of Muslims to fire bomb, destory, burn and protest. It is comparing two very different cultures, but the point was... westerners then see the Muslim world as overzelous and easy to violence.

It is a global world. You cannot stay unchanged forever. That goes for everyone. Change comes. Change is hard on everyone. But change is good.
