I couldn't be in Paris for today's show of unity, but I can speak from afar.
Every Baby Boomer who grew of age in the 60s and 70s knows publications like Charlie Hebdo, even if we weren't part of the media movement of biting satire. It's not my form of expression, quite frankly. I got out of the adolescent world of cheap and immature satire a long time ago. But free expression goes far beyond defending the rights of offensive satirists. We're defending our own rights in doing so. If we capitulate at the expense of cheap satirists, when will our capitulation to pinhead terrorists stop? We stand our ground now.
