Maybe I can tell you about this nifty thing I found in my mailbox tomorrow

I wanted to talk about something completely different, but my stomach keeps tying itself into knots over what's been happening in France the last week. I've been trying to avoid the news and everything as much as possible, because it just makes me scared and depressed, but it's not working.

Islamophobia was already a huge problem before, and this is decidedly not helping. People are now shooting at mosques and shit, because free speech? Politicians are calling for a French Patriot Act?
