"What?" said the Mad Hatter to the White Rabbit. "Are you thinking again?"

"He's been horribly depressed since these recent terrorist tragedies," explained Alice. "It's not only sad, but scary."

"Pah," the Mad Hatter replied. "All psyops. Don't give it a second thought."

"How can you be so callous?" Alice exclaimed. "I'm so upset I haven't read any Hollywood gossip in two days!"

"Don't worry." The Mad Hatter poured her some tea with a dash of SSRIs. "it'll be back to awards shows and the Kardashians soon. At least the Epstein sex scandal has been knocked off the mainstream media." He offered a cup to the White Rabbit. "Drink me."

The White Rabbit held up a paw. "No, not just yet. Did you notice it? The subliminal message?" He pointed to the signs now ubiquitous on the internet and at memorial demonstrations.

The Mad Hatter snorted. "Mais oui. But of course."

Alice frowned. "What do you mean? What message?"

"Remember how the French responded after 9/11? 'We are all Americans now.' Nous sommes Americains."

"So?" shrugged Alice.

"It says 'I am Charlie', not 'We are Charlie'."

"Mmm, this is good tea," Alice murmured. "What are you prattling on about now, Rabbit?"

"I think they chose 'JE SUIS CHARLIE', in that font, because JESUIS looks like Jesus."

"Jesus! You're as mad as old Hatter here," Alice scoffed. "Just because the attackers shouted something about Allah doesn't mean we should be against Muslims."

"I agree with you there," said the Hatter. "There are geopolitical issues at play. But, of course, the mainstream media are going to toe the party line, the right wing media are going to use these events to promote a military-industrial profiteering agenda, and the neoliberals will promote their imperial chess game. Putin isn't going to be around forever."

"Huh?" Alice looked totally confused. "Now you're prattling on, Hatter. What's with everybody today? I'm just saying we need to practice tolerance. This tea makes me feel like being nice to everybody. Where's my People magazine?"
