Satire is a wonderful part of our political debate. Satire is an under-appreciated part of journalism. Satirical websites and magazines are a celebration of what it means to be human, and a powerful tool to undermine those who would control us.

No wonder people want to destroy it.

My thoughts are with the staff of Charlie Hebdo, and their loved ones. I canโ€™t imagine how horrible this must be.
