Je suis Charlie

Remembering the victims of the Charlie Hebdo massacre:

Frédéric Boisseau, Franck Brinsolaro, Jean Cabut, Elsa Cayat, Stéphane Charbonnier, Philippe Honoré, Bernard Maris, Ahmed Merabet, Mustapha Ourrad, Michel Renaud, Bernard Verlhac (Tignous), Georges Wolinski.

I urge you to read Open Letter: On Blasphemy, Islamophobia, and the True Enemies of Free Expression by Charb (Stéphane Charbonnier).

Criticizing a religion is not racist.

Criticizing religious zealots and terrorists is not racist.

Islam itself is not a problem.

People who want to silence others are the problem.

People who want to kill others in the name of a religion are the problem, be that religion Islam or Christianity or Judaism or vegetarianism.

You Handsome Devil, You

You look so marvelous. You really do. It’s no wonder you sit there admiring yourself in the mirror all day. Your hubris is virtually saintly.

Missionary/Doctor/Clown

From my private journal:

December 26, 1992

My five year-old son (Timothy) told me that he wants to be a missionary/doctor/clown.

A missionary because they tell people about Jesus.

A doctor because they help to make sick people better.

A clown because they make people happy.
