Go, Read: Boston-Centric Article About Charlie Hebdo Killings

I don't necessarily agree with the implications at the conclusion of this article: I think there are reasons to pay attention to the Hebdo killings distinct from a loss of life measure even though, yes, many of these stories mentioned should be discussed way, way more frequently and with greater thoroughness. I urge everyone to take control of their newsgathering in a way they can find information out on important stories.

That said, I like the engaged tone of the piece, particularly in that the writer tries to explain a bit how a magazine like that can become a beloved institution, and its reminder that a lot of its meaning will be processed community to community.
