A couple of days ago, I was sent this satirical cartoon totally unsolicited by SFO Bay Area artist Tim Sheppard who said he was troubled by the free speech issues surrounding the Mann-Steyn lawsuit. He sends it with a disclaimer:
DISCLAIMER: The following editorial cartoon contains satire, parody, exaggeration and uncensored imagery of balding public figures projected to be completely hairless about the north polar region by the year 2020.
It is not peer reviewed. It makes no claims to absolute undeniable, settled truth, while it does depict a very plausible scenario wherein catastrophic warming might cause pants to combust and hockey sticks to break spontaneously.
No actual polar bears were harmed in the production of this cartoon.
Free speech is the issue. The answer to discomforting free speech is even more free speech.
