Bit by bit

I guess I should be aboil over Charlie Hebdo, but sometimes it's the little daily dumb closer to home that wears you down.

Anyway, this addresses the Paris killings better than I could:

We are having a series of loud, impassioned, righteous conversations about questions like “Should people murder?” and “Should we have the right to publish cartoons?” We’re debating, in other words, dead moral questions, and for the same reason we always do: because that debate allows us to ignore the ones that might lead us to a different place than the celebration of our own liberal righteousness.
