    ...as people return to work after a summer break during which the government authorized the state...
    You know your country's in a sorry state when the government is more efficient and productive than the citizens.

    I'm not surprised that the French wouldn't stand for it. We tend to revolt at the drop of a hat every time a tree looks at us in a funny way hahahah
