Cartoon Irony

Courtesy of Tim Blair, the one and only Joe Bob Briggs weighs in on a situation that epitomizes the word "irony":

When you publish a book called Killed Cartoons: Casualties from the War on Free Expression, the whole point would seem to be that you're speaking up for unfettered satire. Apparently not. The publishers of Killed Cartoons ... killed one of the cartoons!

The cartoon in question involved a certain historical religious figure. Unless you've been living under a rock this decade, you can probably guess which one.

Update: 7-24-07. I just found out the tragic news that Doug Marlette, the author of the cartoon in question, was killed in an auto accident two weeks ago.
