Cartoonist Ed Koren Responds on the Charlie Hebdo Massacre

The Vermont Cartoon laureate, Ed Koren, responded recently to the Charlie Hebdo massacre in France in a letter to the New Yorker, as reported by Seven Days:

This week’s terrorist attack on French satirical publication Charlie Hebdo sent shockwaves throughout France and the world. And while any massacre of any humans is horrific and terrifying, this one particularly hit home with cartoonists, satirists and journalists worldwide. The defiant demonstration of solidarity on the streets of Paris, and the electronic reverberations in tens of thousands of “Je suis Charlie” (I am Charlie) posts, are the only heartening aspects of this sad event.
