Cartoonist behind “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day” backs down: “I said that I wanted to counter fear and then I got afraid”

Well it ain’t over till I say it’s over. In the words of the immortal Bluto:

“Over? Did you say “over”? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!”
