Borders blocks Danish cartoons

Jerry Stratton, March 30, 2006

You know, I actually enjoy going to Borders and spending more on books, CDs, and DVDs than I would across the street at Target. I enjoy going to a place that appears to respect a wide variety of views and carry a variety of viewpoints. I enjoy browsing through the rows upon rows of magazines they carry, from the Utne Reader to Guns & Ammo.

But not, apparently, discussion of a handful of cartoons that might cause extremists to become violent. What is going to happen when other extremists learn this lesson? Will a little rioting over pro-choice articles in magazines remove that discussion from Borders also? What about threats for carrying pornography?
