Greetings from Strasbourg
It's the fifth day of national strikes in France and nearly every building here in Strasbourg has "CPE NON" written on it in chalk. The student/union opposition to the new French labor law seems to be intensifying just as the government appears to be caving. The tram line into the heart of the city was diverted at Place Kleber due to demonstrations.
Late last night (early for you) the word came over CNN International that Moussoui (sp?) got the death penalty. Of course he'll probably languish in a federal prison for a decade, which may be preferable to making him a martyr.
My presentation went well. Public speaking always gets the adrenaline flowing. Now: puis avoir un biere s'il vous plait.
