??we unfortunately have decided to cancel??
That was part of an email waiting for me this morning from Stéphane Grimaldi, the Directeur General of Le Mémorial de Caen in Normandy, France concerning a cartoonists? conference I was due to attend in April. Mr. Grimaldi explained that because of security concerns and the fact the Memorial?s website had been hacked six times in less than a month, he had no choice but to cancel the meeting of 43 cartoonists from around the world.
