Bastille Day Re-Enactment Basically a Bust?

Written By D.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20090129/wl_nm/us_france_strike_5 Labor Unions in France protest but it did not result in Bastille Day. The economy in France is 6 feet under and they’re basically protesting about union gripes, so much for French patriotism.

And now a moment of pause to quote from a classic;
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the
age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief. It was
the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of
Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had
everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to
Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far
like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its
being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison
only.” Charles Dickens, “A Tale of Two Cities.”
Hey, that could apply to France in 2009. Come to think of it, that could apply to the entire world right now. Well, I already read the book so I know how it ends.

Hollywood is probably already preparing for another endless remake movie. Do you think Angelina should play the “Madame Lafarge” character? I wonder if she knows how to knit.
When they storm the Bastille, give me a call.
