This needs to be a country that does not go crazy over editorial cartoons. That happens elsewhere, where free speech is not so well understood, or so deeply ingrained as a defining value. Chris Britt, whose work appears weekly in Illinois Times, has been the target of an over-the-top hate mail campaign after a cartoon he posted on Facebook went viral. Calm down, people. It’s his job to provoke. If you disagree, or even if you’re outraged, that’s OK. Take a few deep breaths and thank God it’s a free country.  –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
