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

Necrothreading much?

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.

I own, built and run this place. In a previous life I was not French but sadly, I died.
