One of the cartoonists who got in trouble with Muslims for drawing the Prophet was physically attacked in a classroom lecture about free speech by one or more lunatics who broke his glasses.

Nothing to see here, people. Who can fathom the motives for such unfortunate incidents? Not the AP in Sweden, it appears. Via Reason.
