Here. Tunisia and tourism have been in the news this past week. Now think. The most fanatical Muslims have, with one attack in Tunisia at the Bardo Museum, done great damage to tourism, on which so many Tunisians depend.

Here. The FN came second in the local elections, far ahead of its previous performance. And if you look not at individual outcomes, but at the total vote for the candidates of each party, the National Front (FN) had far more votes than the "droite" of the UMP.  Take a look.   ...Read More...

It’s received wisdom that France does not reform except by violence. Since I heard my French brother-in-law repeat this wisdom recently, I believe that it must be true.
