“Draw Mohammad Week” - I'm game

Via de Volksdrant, Brussels Journal has brought to us a great idea; join the brave Dutch artists (who have to stay anon so they can keep their windows and heads) and have "Teken-Mohammed-Week" ... "Draw Mohammed Week" to you and me.
In an article in the Amsterdam newspaper De Volkskrant today Dutch cartoonists admit that they do not depict Muhammad out of fear for violent retaliations. “It is a kind of self-censorship,” Stefan Verwey admits. “I have large windows and would rather keep them intact,” says Peter de Wit, while Joep Bertrams concedes. “It causes a lot of problems. Why throw oil on the fire?”

Other cartoonists, however, who have asked to remain anonimous, think that Western artist should not allow themselves to be intimidated and propose an international “Draw Muhammad Week.”
It has gotten to the point that it isn't about the silly drawings....it is about one of the bedrocks of modern Western Civ; free speech - or the right to be a jerk and not be killed over it.

Hey, I don't know when it is - but I'm game. As a matter of fact, why don't I become proactive about the thing. We should have a blog drawmohammedweek.blogspot.com. Hey, we do!

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure
of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of
content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Hiya! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that
might be able to fix this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Many thanks!
