To the people of France,

I wish to send my deepest sympathy to those most closely affected by the executions at Charlie Hebdo, and to a French public in mourning. Liberals and conservatives in equal measure understand the value and importance, not to mention joy, of satire, humor, nonsense, and courage in the 21st century.

  1. I have SO much of your blogging to catch up with! I am always amazed at how you manage to see my posts, and now I realize how many of yours I haven’t seen. I will scroll down now but wont spam you with likes, but I WILL like them all!

      1. I did have to play Sherlock to recover some of those I follow and others are still on the missing list so don’t let it go too long!
