Boycott Borders

Andrew Sullivan and a growing number of bloggers are attacking the Borders bookstore chain for its cowardly decision not to carry a magazine that contains photos of the Danish cartoons.

I usually don't support boycotts, but this case is an exception and one on which all ranges of political opinion should agree.

Sullivan is correct. At least Borders is out front with its reasons: They're afraid.

Not a bold position for people who are in a business that depends upon freedom of speech.

Perhaps some of their executives should stroll over to the History section and read up on what appeasement accomplished in the Thirties.
