It's a sad way to start off the new year, but here's my tribute to a group of cartoonists and their friends who were killed a couple of days ago. They died because they produced dopey and irreverent drawings of Muhammad. Here's a link. I can't tell if they are funny because I don't speak French. Regardless, I think that it's always better to focus on remembering the victims and not the killers, especially when the killers were trying to stir up fear and to make a name for themselves and their cause. So let's forget the murderers, and remember these artists who were outrageous in the best ways and in the worst ways.
