- The US have discovered their first case of mad cow disease. Ok, after unilateral US taxes on iron, unilateral US taxes on french cheese and goods, let's see a ban on american beef based on real reasons... Don't misunderstand me, I am not happy to see mad cow disease in the US. I am happy to see Bush's admin deal with another big problem and I hope it will be a good incentive for US farmers to stop giving hormones to cows, stop feeding them with products made from meat (cows are made to eat GRASS, not meat!).
- Jacques Chirac just said "I will do all I can do to make sure Alain Juppé is my successor" (source: Le Canard Enchaîné). Alain Juppé... Chirac's prime minister in 95. The guy was so bad that he said "I'll resign when there are 1 million people demonstrating in the streets". A few days later, two millions were in the streets... Alain Juppé is the worst choice of all for this country, and even his own party knows about it. The supreme quintescence of French administrative superiority. Almost hated by the population. Only Chirac supports him. No future...
