The Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks was attacked by a would-be Muslim lynch mob at Uppsala University, Sweden, for his depiction of the Prophet Mohammed in a cartoon. Vilks was defiant, but the university promptly said it would not invite him back and a Swedish politician issued a mealy-mouthed statement. When your cartoonists have the most courage and common sense of anybody, I think you can safely say your town is a twin city of Chelm. Congratulations, Uppsala!
