>>The paper also interviewed six leading cartoonists, who all admire Hart. Five of them thought the religious interpretation probably was right, including Berkeley Breathed, creator of "Bloom County" and "Opus," and Jef Mallett, creator of the nationally syndicated cartoon "Frazz."
Only Doonesbury's Garry Trudeau sided with Hart.
"We cartoonists are simple folk. We don't write on that cryptic a level," he told the Post. "Leave Johnny alone." <<
I hate to tell you but when Trudeau thinks that this was not an afront to Islam, I have to believe it was.

Now THIS is interesting....
Gary Trudeau supports Johnny Hart. Trudeau is one of the most anti-Bush cartoonists out there, and if there was ANYONE who would try to spin it in a liberal way, it'd be him...but he didn't.
And Hart is a publicly-professed Christian.
This is indeed interesting.
(BTW..I found nothing in that cartoon that was remotely anti-muslim.)
