Ruben Oppenheimer’s cartoon

The French are going through their September 11th. Their twin towers were sharpened pencils – words, satirical drawings, thoughts – as symbolically cherished by them as our Twin Towers were to us. Violence killed them all. For us the symbol was of power and high finance. For them, it’s freedom of expression. This cartoon is really worth more than these paltry words.
