I just want to pay tribute, however insignificant. However off-the-mark.

A friend put it well on Facebook: “I was raised to believe that everything in the world was open to question and ridicule.

Not politicians, not soldiers, not police, not fanatics, not world leaders or mercenaries, but cartoonists and satirists.
