Charlie Hebdo, freedom and world building

I wanted to express my deepest sympathy for the those fallen cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo Even though the French satirical political weekly newspaper has a strongly left-wing slant, it doesn’t deserved to be silenced.  So Je suis Charlie it is. This is one of the images that Charb and the other cartoonists were murdered for. http://d.ibtimes.co.uk/en/full/1363987/charlie-hebdo-frontpage.jpg

This is why I am thankful for being an American and also having a German national as a father. (He held dual citizenship as he was born in Germany during WW2. He didn’t leave for America until 1965.)That gives me perspective on both our amazing freedoms that we take for granted here in the US (like the ability to mock our president on twitter for not going to the Paris event in support of the terrorist attack, the ability to decide our leaders, own weapons and be safe) and understand the sadness that it is to be in Europe as well as their joys.

Anyway, after that last sad post I said the site isn’t dead. It’s not. The posting of stories is on hold. There are more issues at foot than I wish to burden people with so it’s simple choice. That never meant everything else stops. I have been developing background and other items. I’ve decided in the interim to post those. As I said before it will be a series of Wikipedia entries from the Song of the Assembly reality Wikipedia. The links will be on another page.
