Denmark’s justice ministry refused to allow seven Muslim lobby groups to take the newspaper Jyllands-Posten to the Supreme Court for publishing controversial cartoons of Prophet Muhammed, said a report by Agence France-Presse on the Vancouver Sun website.

That’s as good a justification for publishing the cartoons as I’ve yet seen. Still, I can’t be the only one getting tired of this unfunny cartoon saga.
