Our courageous press, guardians of our liberties 

Now twelve papers (including the Providence Journal) have their knickers in a twist about "offensive content":

Gary Trudeau has a Doonesbury cartoon where President * calls Karl Rove "turd blossom." So they're not running the strip.

But Bush does call Rove "turd blossom" (part of his bullying habit of giving people nicknames)

So where does the offense really lie?

NOTE Yeah, so maybe I'm not being sensitive enough to parents who don't want to answer questions like "Mommy, what does 'turd blossom' mean?" But couldn't we just view that as a teachable moment?
