By now one thing we’ve learned in this post-9/11 world of our is that cartoons aren’t always a laughing matter.

The FBI has reportedly advised Seattle-based cartoonist Molly Norris to go into hiding as a result of a fatwa or death sentence that has been issued.  The fatwa was issued after she drew a cartoon this summer:  “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day”,  the Seattle P-I website reported. The news site said the movement became popular on Facebook.

The P-I reported that Seattle Weekly editor-in-chief Mark D. Fefer wrote in Wednesday’s issue that  Norris’ comic would no longer appear in the paper.

He noted that the cartoonist involves “moving, changing her name, and essentially wiping away her identity.”  The FBI did not comment, the P-I reported.
