A few links of interest from Washington opinion pages:

• The Seattle Times tells Google to stop snooping.

• Former Seattle P-I cartoonist, David Horsey, blogs about Molly Norris, the Seattle cartoonist whose the target of a fatwa for publishing a satirical cartoon on her Web site declaring May 20 “Everybody Draw Muhammed Day.” The cartoon was sparked by Comedy Central’s decision to censor an episode of “South Park” that showed the Prophet Muhammed dressed in a bear suit.

Horsey says the threat against Norris illustrates the broader challenge to Western civilization. “We are in a mortal struggle with an elusive, merciless death cult. So far, American leaders have been no more clever than American cartoonists in choosing the ground on which to fight.”

• The Olympian takes the U.S. Senate to task for failing to come through with funding for the Department of Labor’s summer youth employment program. Last year, the program provided summer jobs for 600 South Sound disadvantaged youngsters.
