Je Suis Charlie

Screenshot 2015-01-12 at 12.56.03 AM
This is one of the cartoons which precipitated an attack by Islamist terrorists against the French satirical publication Charlie Hebdo last week. While I’m not sure I’m crazy about the magazine’s content—Joe Saaco has a great take on the attacks here—and while I’m concerned about the straw-man the attacks provide to anti-Muslim bigots, the least I can do with my little Seattle blog is post in solidarity with these cartoonists who died in large part for freedom of speech.

(On the Media‘s coverage of the attacks’ aftermath is also very much worth your time.)
