Noticing a sudden surge in visitors to this (idle.. ) blog, it struck me: Charlie ! – “Transhumanisten” is getting attention thanks to, for instance, this article: Charlie-Hebdo: to-print-or-not-to-print.. ,
- so I thought I ought to at least say something.., but instead I’m “merely” posting a couple of cartoons..

That’ll do for today.., – maybe add more tomorrow..
Update, jan. 9,
Sadly, Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, infamous for publishing the 2005 “Mo-toons”, – (see above), – has been cowed.., thus no cartoons on yesterday’s front-page. Instead a short, google-translated message:
“The [Charlie Hebdo] terrorist attack reminds us that the free world has a common project in protecting our democratic, societal order against the religious madness whose representatives spread violence, terror, horror and repression in the name of an alleged divine legitimacy“
Jyllands-Posten frontpage, jan. 8, – 2015
The question I’m asking myself is this: Is this “common project” best served by (self) censorship ??..
NO, NO and NO ! – I say, but then I’m not working at Jyllands-Posten, if you take my meaning…
It’s really odd.. – No cartoons in Jyllands-Posten, and Charlie Hebdo cartoons everywhere else, even in Sweden !
