You may have noticed I've been gone a while. In fact I was living outside of France, and have just come back, a little grumpily, to my nice Paris apartment and my cat. It has been raining for the past two days and the garbagemen are on strike.
The big news in the past two days has been the Air France débâcle, which, in case you haven't been following it, involves government subsidies, the loss of 2900 well-paid union jobs, a very strong pilots' union, and a couple of HR managers* coming close to being lynched by an angry crowd yelling "Strip them naked!"
Can't say I've missed it.
*who were given the nasty task of announcing the job cuts but who have no responsibility for them
