Fahrenheit 451 on PEI
The controversial cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that have incited worldwide violent protests are now causing a stir at the University of Prince Edward Island.
The student newspaper, The UPEI Cadre, chose to run the cartoons in its most recent edition fresh off the press. UPEI moved quickly Wednesday to stop the paper from being distributed on campus.
“When we realized that they were in circulation, we acted to round up the copies that were in circulation,’’ said UPEI president Wade MacLauchlan.
“We see it as a reckless invitation to public disorder and humiliation.’’

Steve Janke points out that:
Muslims riot. Muslims burn. Muslims rampage. And Muslims get their way."Barbarians" is a word that has been going through my mind a lot, lately.
The rest of us act in a civilized manner. Our reward? In the institution that most symbolizes civilization, the university, we concede to the barbarians without even a semblance of resistance.
