So, taken with the story from last week, let's recast this: France should take Gordon Brown's lead by relying on public employment programmes to bring the young and the disadvantaged into the work force and thus solve the unemployment problem.

I'd be happy to give the credit to Great Britain on this one - if they are willing to take it!!

You know what? It might be worth trying to write up an op-ed along those lines, to see it they will bite. Sort of like the Sokal hoak.
