Charlie Hebdo- Update!

Well the French did it!

Philippe Val and his satirical paper Charlie Hebdo were cleared, today, of all wrongdoing in the Danish Mohammed Cartoon publication brouhaha.

Val was accused of "publicly abusing a group of people because of their religion."

Not surprisingly, one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit (the Union of Islamic Organizations of France) has said it will appeal, and you have to wonder how the Islamic community is going to respond to what will, obviously, be considered a slap in the face.

This is very good news, however, for proponents of free speech!
