Seattle Cartoonist Receives Cartoonish Death Threats

After portraying the Prophet Mohammed in a recent cartoon, Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris has been targeted for assassination by radical al Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. In the article that ran in Inspire, an English-language al Qaeda magazine, al-Awlaki calls for a giant anvil to be dropped on Norris or for someone to deliver her a bouquet of flowers containing lit sticks of TNT. At press time, Norris has not commented, but it is rumored that when she first heard about the threats she jumped up in the air and her eyes popped out of her head.
