Firewall Fairy Feels For The Fucking Frogs

Roger Cohen:

Not only is Christine Lagarde France’s finance minister, ready to forsake her native tongue, she is, she says, “happier doing this in English.” With that, right off the bat, she declares in ringing Anglo-Saxon: “We are trying to change the psyche of the French people in relation to work.”

Yeah, I'll say:

The French transportation strike – set to begin Wednesday night - could be one of the country’s biggest labour disruptions since the 1995 general strike. Train, metro and bus employees across the country will be protesting President Nicolas Sarkozy’s plan to reform the “special” pension plans of public sector workers.

Quite frankly, I wish we had more of the French work ethic...
