  • "Je suis Charlie." it seems like the world is saying. It seems like we are all expected to sing along, and I say, "Non!" I am on a mailing list for a comic distributor, not to be confused with a publisher, and some friendly racist there decided we all needed to see another picture of the smoking World Trade Center (I for one don't). An American flag (umm...the issue seems to be in France) was his next visual offering. He then tries to sell some comic books before sharing a link to twelve offensive cartoons from an offensive rag. I knew I didn't want to see that garbage so scrolled on down, only to find he was not satisfied to let us opt out of seeing them. He had put half of them right in my inbox. I object! The fellow in green, with the black hood, is a Muslim American character. He's a good man (fictionally at least) and does not deserve to see hate plastered all over newsstands any more than the average Muslim does.
