Worth while and funny.
 
Have YOU subscribed to Charlie Hebdo yet?

The perfect way to both support Charlie Hebdo and say "fuck you" to violent extremists is to subscribe to the magazine. 

At the time of the attack, the publication was struggling financially and had only 30,000 subscribers. Can we make it a million? 

I found out that in the United States you can subscribe on Amazon.com, which is where I subscribed: 

http://www.amazon.com/Charlie-Hebdo/dp/B00007LMFU/ref=sr_1_1?s=magazines&ie=UTF8&qid=1420759018&sr=1-1&keywords=charlie+hebdo

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance... but for now, the price of freedom is $186.25 plus tax. 

From +The New Yorker: "The murders in Paris were so specific and so brazen as to make their meaning quite clear. The cartoonists died for an idea. The killers are soldiers in a war against freedom of thought and speech, against tolerance, pluralism, and the right to offend—against everything decent in a democratic society. So we must all try to be Charlie, not just today but every day."

Or at least weekly. ; )   Subscribe now.

Neil deGrasse Tyson @ neiltyson
The less evidence we have for what we believe is certain, the more violently we defend beliefs against those who don't agree.

Fyi -- all proceeds to the 12 families


Paris (AFP) - The "survivors' issue" of Charlie Hebdo will also be sold outside France next week because of the massive world attention for the satirical weekly following the massacre of its top staff -- a turnaround for a publication that just a week ago was on the brink of folding.
