Links, Statements And Notes As They Relate To The Charlie Hebdo Killings

This is a clearinghouse for various links and articles related to the killings in and around the Charlie Hebdo offices, and its violent aftermath in Paris a couple of days later. There will be links to material and the employment of images here or elsewhere that may upset. Every link and every image used is intended to better facilitate this site's mission to inform.

* the photos of Tignous' coffin covered in cartoons from his peers are probably the one heartbreaking thing related to the Hebdo killing I've seen since the last one of these link round-ups. It may seem like an odd thing to do in someone's memory, but what else do we have to give them? Here's another photo-heavy article, with even some video. At least two others were buried yesterday by my count and that should proceed quickly. One article says that French law says you have to be buried near where you born or near where you die, but I'm not sure how accurate that is.

* here's a piece by the Israeli caricaturist Michel Kichka.

* this must have been unsettling for Larry Pickering.

* the Atlantic has a piece up on how Boston is reacting to last week's Hebdo-related news in the context of their own recent terrorism-related period of paralysis, fear and injury.

* speaking of that magazine, Ta-Nehisi Coates is jumping in with both feet. One of the admirable things he does with his writing is detail how he comes around to specific lines of thinking.

* the view from the American old-school right.

* Pakistan formally criticizes Charlie Hebdo.

* the Pope jumps in.

* PW has a rough outline of cartoonist reactions I totally missed seeing until now.

* the Guardian had a feature about how cartoonists in the Middle East responded that's more analysis that survey -- and that's a good thing.

* Tom Kaczynski sent along this fascinating video featuring cartoonists and satirists from Iran responding to the Hebdo killings.

* this Paul Tumey article on offensive techniques and flourishes employed in the service of editorial cartoon seems like a potentially fascinating one.

* finally, I hadn't seen this Asuf Hanaka drawing before running into it on Twitter.
