'Pearls Before Swine' Cartoon Mocking NSA Wiretapping Censored

The comic strip "Pearls Before Swine" is no stranger to controversy and is well-known for pushing the envelope. Apparently, yesterday's scheduled strip went a bit too far, and was not published in newspapers. Pearls Before Swine's cartoonist Stephan Pastis tweeted it out anyways, saying that he thought the strip was "harmless" and that the censorship was unnecessary.

Personally, I don't see the issue. Part of the appeal of Pearls Before Swine is that it's an edgier comic that takes more risk with its humor--it's not the saccharine Family Circus. It's also a strip known for its (often awesomely-bad) puns. This is nothing from the norm, and I don't understand why this couldn't be printed.

If this is the world we're living in now, I don't like it.
