Necrothreading much?

Article content

Don Jacques Chirac has been honoring some Goodfellas and connected guys.

And one gal particularly.
No matter what happens, Jacques Chirac keeps giving out ribbons and medals. (...) He decorated two worthy persons from the Corrèze, as it should be (...)
The Corrèze is where Mr. Chirac's family has its roots and it's also his political "fief".
Apart from that, a pretty pleasant region.

I mean, the same goes for Sicily, I guess.
More than everything, the president was decorating, that Monday, the former chief of his private secretariat at the Paris town hall and then at the Elysée palace, Marianne Hibon-Legendre. (...) The president lauded her numerous merits and notably her "great discretion".
"You know how to listen and not talk" emphasized the president.
I see.

This vow of silence is called "Omerta" in Sicily. I don't know the word in the Corrèza Nostra though.

It's important to remember, as the article recalls, that Consigliere Marianne Hibon-Legendre was summoned by the police when it was putting some heat on the The Honored Society's affairs at the Paris town hall - some time before Don Jacques got commissioned to his current Capo di tuti capi rank with a 25% majority - but didn't refer and answered the questions by mail.

Heh. Wiseguys aren't pigeons for Uncle Sugar you know.

Apart from that, Yves Parlier received the Legion of Honor for breaking his boat, fixing it while eating seaweed and fish and basically, for not being dead.

Possibly the best France can do when it comes to heroism.

Article copy (alternate language)

Don Jacques "Le Parrain" Chirac a honoré ses fidèles complices.

Une femme, en particulier.
Quoi qu'il arrive, Jacques Chirac continue, tranquillement, à distribuer rubans et médailles. (...) Il a décoré deux Corréziens méritants, comme il se doit (...)
La Corrèze est le berceau de la famille et son "fief" politique.
A part ça, une région plutôt sympa.

J'imagine qu'on peut dire la même chose de la Sicile.
Surtout, le président décorait, ce lundi, l'ex-chef de son secrétariat particulier à la Mairie de Paris, puis à l'Elysée, Marianne Hibon-Legendre. (...) Le chef de l'Etat a loué ses nombreuses qualités, et notamment sa "très grande discrétion".
"Vous savez écouter et ne pas parler", a souligné le président.
Je vois.

Cette loi du silence est appelée "Omerta" en Sicile. Je ne connais pas le nom pour la Corrèza Nostra.

Il est important de se rappeler, ainsi que le précise l'article, que, convoquée par les policiers lors de l'enquête sur les affaires de l'Honorable Société à la Mairie de Paris - un peu avant que Don Jacques ne recoive son rang actuel de Capo di tuti capi à une majorité de 25% - la Consigliere Marianne Hibon-Legendre n'avait pas déféré et avait répondu aux questions par courrier.

Heh. Les Affranchis balancent pas aux poulets.

A part ça, Yves Parlier a reçu la Légion d'Honneur pour avoir cassé son bateau, l'avoir réparé en mangeant des algues et du poisson et n'être pas mort.

Probablement le meilleur que la France puisse produire en terme d'héroïsme.
