Papers Pull Opus Comic Strip To Avoid Offending Muslims

Berkely Breathed, the comic genius behind Bloom County and now Opus has notified readers of his Sunday comic that newspapers around the country (including The Washington Post) are pulling his next two strips. From his website:

Note to Opus readers: The Opus strips for August 26 and September 2 have been withheld from publication by a large number of client newspapers across the country, including Opus’ host paper The Washington Post.
