Charlie Hebdo

Do a Google image search for "charlie hebdo mohammad" and see the cartoons they were printing. Makes the mass murder at the Charlie Hebdo office less surprising. Still appalling, but less surprising.

Drawing something disgusting or offensive isn't terribly difficult, especially if you're trying to offend fundamentalists. I can't say I see what the big deal was about this magazine. I suppose it qualifies as satire. Now they're referring to the victims as "journalists".

It was a horrible crime. Committed by two men in their 30s and an 18-year-old boy whose life they decided to destroy while they were at it. The teenager surrendered to police.

[Turns out the 18-year-old suspect had an airtight alibi--he was at school.]

Won't do much for French Muslims.
