Quote of the day

"I stand with Charlie Hebdo, as we all must, to defend the art of satire, which has always been a force for liberty and against tyranny, dishonesty and stupidity."

Salman Rushdie, himself no stranger to being targeted by Islamic fundamentalists, responds to the terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo's offices in Paris.

Meanwhile, of all the graphic responses to the massacre that I've seen, this one (by Lucille Clerc rather than Banksy, as first reported) is perhaps the best.
