Cartoonists have been getting attention lately, and not in a good way, from the renewed debate over Charlie Hebdo to Pamela Geller's provocations to the story that I just ran across about a 28 year old woman arrested in Iran for drawing a cartoon about contraception. Meanwhile, jihadists continue to call for the death of cartoonists -- as if we didn't have enough to worry about already. Who knew this profession would turn out to be so fraught with peril?
Oh, and if you want to save Sparky, all you have to do is clap your hands and believe -- and join Sparky's List!
Update: I strongly urge you to read this newly-released report from the Committee to Protect Journalists: Cartoonists Under Threat.
