Are you Charlie?

I've seen all sorts of reactions from the killing in France yesterday - everywhere from horrified to "The magazine was offensive toward minorities. That was the consequence."

IS IT?

Or is the consequence of the things you say and do (especially in the context of satire) that some people might not like it and *say something* about it? Or is it something where you should be asking "Am I prepared to die over this?"

Some really big questions for creative folks... what creative endeavor are you willing to put your mark on and say "yeah, this is what I'm about" in a world where death could be the result (Hopefully not, but there is certainly a lot more negative public reaction than has been the case) - and how does that shape what it is you are creating?

Vote - Week 32

A few words from clauderainsrm:

There are some weeks where I think “THIS is why I do it”.

Reading through the entries below, it’s definitely one of those weeks.

There is some really good stuff out there. I know it’s always tough to get back into the swing of things, but I hope that if you are reading this note, you let your friends know there is some great writing going on here - and they should come enjoy it!

Unfortunately, being Idol, it also means that we will have to say goodbye to some of our writers.

In this case, the bottom two from each poll.

The “good” news is that we actually have *two* sacrifices. I’m going to spread them out, so really there is only one person per pool going out due to the vote. So you can send them thank you notes, once it’s officially revealed who those two are. It’s only “good” in quotes though, losing anyone at this point - especially that way, really sucks.

But for two people, it’s going to be one more chance - so I thought that I would point it out before we even get out of the starting blocks.

Of course, there is Immunity - one that will be handed out by the Jury and one that will be handed out by the participants in the Home Game/Killing Floor. So there is no telling how this is going to go in this, the first official poll of 2015!

Read. Comment on the entries. Vote for your Favorites!

Repeat in the second poll. :)

The polls close Monday, Jan 12th at 9pm EST

Good luck to everyone!
