To which one might add a 3 million copy run for 
the next issue of Charlie Hebdo, January 14, 
which will have the Prophet Mohammed on its 
cover, holding a sign before his chest (like 
shaming punishments of the 18th century) that 
reads "Je suis Charlie".  (Although without the 
hash-tag tag.)  Above the Prophet is the healine "Tout est Pardonné".

Cover previewed today. On-line at e.g.
