I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

France Surrenders to the French

French President Jacques Chirac has raised the white flag to the French mob. Hard to make much commentery here because this is no surprise. The French embrace of socialism has turned into a death grip they can't escape. They may just take the EU with them.

French President Jacques Chirac's government Monday withdrew a controversial youth employment law that had ignited more than a month of protests and violence on the streets of Paris and other cities.

Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, the author of the law, announced he was backing down from the measure, saying that he believes both unions and businesses misunderstood his intentions. "I'm sorry about that," he said in an announcement. Villepin said the upheaval over the law "reveals a social anxiety" in France and said the government will work with unions and businesses to "prepare for the future of our country."
