Wait, wait, I'm hearing something. Must be the echo.

Wait, wait, I'm hearing something. Must be the echo.

Article content

Article copy

The closing sentence of the unsuitably — or cunningly — titled "French Revolution" editorial at the WSJ:
The President's prescriptions for the ailing French welfare state are hard to argue with. Now if only Mr. Sarkozy will apply them.

Yep. I'm sure you don't want to hear me saying again that one of the big problems with Monsieur le Président is his big mouth and his short legs, resulting in far more talk than walk.

Still, not a bad article though (do read if you have enough spare time — like 30 to 40 years — to actually bother about that swamp).

Funny thing, is that I could hear Bobby Gentry and Glen Campbell very clearly while reading.

Can't think why.


Hey, where's all the stuff?

I am rebuilding the site from the ground up.

As of June 19, 2019, only basic blogging is implemented.

Features that were previously available—and a bunch of new ones—are still under (re)construction, and will be deployed gradually as soon as they are ready. That includes the site-wide search engine, the blogroll, membership registration and, well, more...

So all the stuff is coming back?

Yes, thank you for your patience.

Note that some of the legacy content (anything I published before the current redesign) may not display as expected—this will be addressed in the future.
