It isn’t always about the mean

‘Draw Muhammad’ cartoonist changes name, goes into hiding at FBI’s insistence:

Seattle Weekly announced Wednesday that it will no longer run Molly Norris’s artwork. The newspaper is also reporting that legally, there is no more “Molly Norris.”

Norris — the Seattle-based illustrator whose cartoon sparked “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day!” earlier this year and a subsequent fatwa against her — has gone into hiding and changed her name at the guidance of the FBI, reports the Seattle Weekly, which says:

“The gifted artist is alive and well, thankfully. But on the insistence of top security specialists at the FBI, she is, as they put it, ‘going ghost’: moving, changing her name, and essentially wiping away her identity. She will no longer be publishing cartoons in our paper or in City Arts magazine, where she has been a regular contributor.”

Well, sometimes you can predict different odds coming out of “extremistan”. How fat is that scary tail? That is the question….
