The world reacted with revulsion and condemnation when terrorists murdered 12 cartoonists and staff members of Charlie Hebdo, a French satirical magazine. For U.S. cartoonists, the attack was a tragic reminder of the price paid for free expression, says Ohman, prize-winning editorial cartoonist for the Sacramento Bee, and Portland State alumni. Violence can’t suppress it, he says, nor can misguided attempts to rein in various other forms of offensive speech.
