#JeSuisCharlie III: Solidarité
Both the NYT and WaPo are part of my daily news-gathering routine, so they are often both open in my navigator.
I captured this screen-shot quite by accident while trying to figure out how the "Imp écran" (French keyboard!) button works best when there's a second screen (vital when I do translating work) jacked into my laptop.
Anyway, seeing this image pop up unexpectedly made me feel compelled to follow the dictates of chance and share it.
The Gid and I don't want to live in a world where we censor ourselves out of fear -- either fear of insulting someone or fear of reprisals. I'll go out on a limb and guess most artists and writers feel the same aversion. So, in solidarity with our extended tribe, on the day Charlie Hebdo bravely hits the newsstands, we'll say "Je Suis Charlie" -- "Nous Sommes Charlie" -- here on LoS one last time.
It ain't much, but it's something.
