A different take on the Charlie Hebdo event

Jump to last reply

Since the other thread has turned into a pfffing contest rather than the original moral support, I thought I'd post this as of travel interest with connections to the recent tragedy.



Last night on a news show it was pointed out that France has this very long history of cartoonists' commenting on current history and I was reminded of probably my favorite museum room in Paris--in the Carnavalet on the floor dedicated to the French Revolution is an entire room of cartoons of that day telling the story of the Revolution and the monarchy. At least I "think" so since my French isn't that good and the cartoons are small!! But it is a WONDerful exhibit.

This current event is SO sad and awful.
