Liveblogging A News Snafu

We've got a serious intelligence failure on the "Mark Davis Show" on WBAP - somehow Davis got the impression that Laurence Simon's Ask the Prophet series is among the controversial Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons. Don't know his source for the strips - apparently he has the whole series.

A female caller questioned the story - "Ask the Prophet" is not among the images she's been seeing in the news, and she thinks some of the cartoons are a bit too America-savvy to be of Danish origin. Davis now doubts the Jyllands-Posten theory of the origins of this purely Texas creation.

Update: Recalling from memory, the text of this, this, this, this, this, this, this, and this strip were read on the air.
