Police Come to Web Cartoonist's Home; His Comics are "Borderline Terroristic Threat"

The story is all over the place today. Here it is on Boing Boing. Go read.

Guy gets fired from his job, writes about it in his ongoing Web comic, police arrive at door on the basis of that comic being a "terroristic threat." If what I've been reading on several sites is true, then I am just flabbergasted at this. And flabbergasted isn't a word I bandy around willy nilly.

It's really gone from saying the word gun in airport will get you taken away, to saying the word gun in the workplace will get you fired. And now, drawing a gun will get men with real guns to your door.
