I've only been here for two thears and I'm certain the subtler points of French society escape me just as surely as most French don't understand America.
But I read in my local rag this morning that the major (or one of...) issue in the current Presidential campaign was "insécurité" which I guess we would translaste as crime.
My question is: what insécurité?
Really. What a bunch of pussies.
When I left LA, we had a freeway killer (AFAIK still at large) who randomly shot people in their cars during their morning commute. To keep people happy, our sheriff pointed out that, even with said FK, we still had fewer violent deaths than the year before.
Also, to me, the Frenbch Police already has so much more power than it needs... How much more does it need?
Besides, if the French are so concerned about insécurité, why then vote for the Sheriff (Sarkozy) who was in charge of Dodge?
That makes no sense at all.
