Viacom's Dhimmitude

I'm no fan of South Park because its vulgarity assaults my sensibilities (the best satire needs no help from scatology); and because the shrill puerile voices its "creative team" gives to the show's characters grates down to my marrow. Yet to Viacom, for its dhimmitudinous haste to sanitize South Park's 200th episode of all depictions and verbal references to Mohammed, I must recommed Benjamin Franklin's timeless observation:

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
