Looming Debate, by Veronique Vienne (Metropolis Magazine) – Annotated Interesting article (with some inaccuracies, too), focused chiefly on Bertrand Delanoe, the “Situationist”-inspired left-leaning, assassination attempt survivor and openly gay mayor of Paris, who gets blind-sided by Nikolas Sarkozy, the pro-business president of France, who wants Paris to be a bit more get-go-ish.
