The leftist French President is on the right of the picture
The current French President François Hollande was invited in Germany, and was given a barrel of salted fish as a “souvenir”.
You know what ? He is happy, because in France, they would have thrown the fish, or maybe some barrels, at him …

The French consider that coming back from their summer holiday means being back at work (where most spend 35 hours per week, with 5 or 6 weeks holiday and RTT). This may explain something about their

Renaud Favier, August 21st, 2012.
Some additional e-reading may be needed about Frenchonomics and other issues. (Please click on pictures if you don’t wanna be a potatoe couch watching the weather forecasts on TV and others enjoy sun, success, beach, love, Champagne, French
learning bashing whilst you seat back in your chair reading the Sun, the Guardian or even worse and more biased against civilisation, the Financial Times).
Downloading some relevant pdf for printing is another option for readers with a taste for “real” paper books (or just no Kindle, but an iPhone, an iPad or whatever else works to e-read).

No panic, no need to close all French Facebook accounts to protect the IPO from the commies. Let G8 Leaders, diplomats and NATO people talk together before anybody decides to start a new war, be it economic, electronic or whatever new kind.
