Charlie Hebdo from France

Charlie Hebdo has been around since the 60's in Paris; they started off as an underground weekly and still continue to publish anything that they think people need to read. I still remember my own misadventures with them when I lived in Paris in the early 70's. This is the cover from the current issue -- Mohammed Overcome by the Fundamentalists -- in which they took a stand and published 12 of the "offensive" Mohammed cartoons. The caption reads, "It's hard being loved by idiots..."
