Vive La France - Updated (Again!)

"Paris is our capital. We love music, drunkenness, joy."
 - from a series of cartoons by Joann Sfar

... and we love La Ville-Lumière (the city of enlightenment)!

From Libération:  some much-needed humor (in both French and English). For a listing of other Parisian news sources (in both French and English), try here.

Hawkwood writes: "So why, of all the major European cities, did Islamic State last month choose to target Paris?"

- Read the rest of the quote here (above the Afterword), or from the original source.*

2016 UPDATE:

"#Je Suis Charlie" - cartoon by Rod Emmerson

Cartoonists honor Charlie Hebdo on anniversary of terrorist attack

"Amid high tension in Paris, cartoonists across the globe are affirming ‘Je reste Charlie’ (I remain Charlie) – showing that their support has not wavered.

Rod Emmerson, an editorial cartoonist for the New Zealand Herald, drew a cartoon that shows two jihadis carrying a large red pencil that reads “#Je suis Charlie.” One terrorist tells his partner that the “infidels” will shiver when they realize they have this “hideous technology” — all they have to do is learn how it’s used."


...and, furthermore (and most importantly) UPDATE #2: I just found this article by Greg Taylor at the Daily Grail which reflects and confirms my own thoughts on the ISIS, no,  Daesh situation: Reclaiming the Goddess: Stop Using the Name ISIS to Describe a Bunch of Ignorant, Murderous F**ktards.

Right on, Greg!
