oh dear what have I done
It seems that this post from a while ago, in which I reproduced certain cartoons published by the French satirical mag Charlie Hebdo, has been found "shocking" by at least one of my French followers and blog readers, who felt that publication might place people at risk. Whoever thought that was both wrong and risible. But even if they had been right it still would have been OK to publish the cartoons. Because freedom of expression is, er, not negotiable. Got that? Even if, especially if, publication causes offence.
