In Defense of South Park

The following letter originally was published in the April 30, 2010, edition of the Denver Post.

Thank you for publishing David Harsanyi’s excellent article about free speech and the Islamist threats against the creators of “South Park.”

Whether you love or hate “South Park” (I happen to think it’s clever satire), as Americans we must defend people’s right to speak even when we disagree with them.

To protest the threats, offer moral support to all those threatened by such violence, and help spread the risk, I have decided to publish my own drawing of Mohammed, and I hope The Denver Post and its readers will do likewise.
