Today The New York Observer published an interview I did with Robert Crumb, on Jan 9, about the massacre of 12 people in Paris, including two satirical cartoonists.
Special thanks to the late, and greatly missed, Christine Maggiore, who connected me to Mr. Crumb many years ago.
He is one of the most vast, patient, kind and brave souls I have ever met, though he views himself as the opposite.
There is a sense now, a real sense, we all agree, of something shifting.
The collective energy is saying:
Whatever it is, bring it, but we’re not going to live like this.
Tyranny and blood only serve to hasten the process of liberty, to wake it up.
