The day after the shooting in Paris

of cartoonists and others employed by
Charlie Hebdo[madaire], signs have appeared
even in this remote village, declaring
JE SUIS CHARLIE HEBDO.
This puzzles me.  Does it mean
that all these people identify with
a juvenile, pseudo-satirical magazine
with dodgy editorial policy and no tendency
towards serious or investigative journalism ?
Or is it just mindless, meaningless
semi-literate middle-class reaction
to a reaction of the poor against the rich ?
