When it is trodden on a worm will curl up. That is prudent. It thereby reduces the chance of being trodden on again. In the language of morals: humility. --Nietzsche
Update: Jeff Jacoby reports on a group of worms who earn a higher status by being honest about their "prudence". To be completely fair, though, the lead should have been taken by the larger media outlets, like the New York Times, Washington Post, Washington Times, LA Times, Boston Globe, CNN, Fox, New York Post, etc. Had those outlets published unexpurgated images of the cartoons, the smaller media outlets would have felt safe enough to follow suit. To date, I only know of three US papers that have published the cartoons: The New York Sun, the Rocky Mountain News and the Philadelphia Inquirer. Not to slight them, but none of them are referred to as the "Newspaper of Record." Maintaining such a designation, though, requires a commitment to fearless reporting, so it looks as though the title might be up for grabs.
Update II: Some cartoons targeting "Muslim rage".
