Jan 10 "While Paris Burns"
While we sit warm and comfortable in our homes, some watching the NFL play-offs, some watching "Tombstone" on the AMC channel, and others catch news clips, Paris erupts with thousands of demonstrators holding their pens high in the air along the Champs Elysees, the Place de la Concorde, and outside Charlie Hebdo's offices where Islamist terrorists slaughtered 12 people, 5 of them satirical cartoonists, Wednesday. My online friend, Mad Magazine artist, Rick Tulka tells me he knew one those killed. While Paris burns, many fear this may the opening salvo in a new kind of war with those crazy bastards, waged within our own borders. Stay safe, and hold your pen high.
