Gypsy deportation from France has Sarko all atwitter

Gypsy deportation from France has Sarko all atwitter Sep 16th, 2010 at 1:30PM: Have you ever stood under the Eiffel Tower? Tried to push through Gare du Nord at rush hour? Undoubtedly, then, you've seen France's unofficial second attraction. Lingering at every major spot in the city, they walk up to you and ask in a gentle voice, "Do you speak English?" Say yes, and you're stuck reading some postcard with a sob story about Bosnia (at least that was the card content in 2007,...

Tour the world's vandalism

Tour the world's vandalism Feb 9th, 2009 at 9:00AM: Eyesore or art, graffiti is part of any culture's public dialogue. Vandalism is visual profanity, and we all swear in our own f---ing ways. I've been drawn to these wall scrawls for a while, probably since I read Holden Caulfield's concerns about the subject in Catcher in the Rye. My fascination gained momentum while I was stationed in South Korea. A soldiers' bar in Tong Du Chon (the Peace Club,...

Putting the voodoo in French presidential politics

Putting the voodoo in French presidential politics Oct 22nd, 2008 at 4:00PM: With the American Presidential election less than two weeks away it's practically impossible to get away from campaign news, so I figured we could all use a bit of international presidential gossip. And what president is better suited for gossip than Monsieur Nicolas Sarkozy? Earlier in the year he was the talk of the French nation for dating, and later marrying, ex-supermodel Carla Bruni. Now...

Nude images of Carla Bruni go for $91,000

Nude images of Carla Bruni go for $91,000 Apr 11th, 2008 at 12:50PM: Remember last month when French President Nicolas Sarkozy's first official visit to the UK was shadowed by the nude pictures of his wife, Carla Bruni, that were being auctioned off by Christie's? Well, those photos finally sold; for an unexpected $91,000. That figure was more than 20 times the asking price, meaning that Bruni is a pretty sought after woman. But it could also be the work of the...

Nude photos of French First Lady spice up Sarkozy's official UK visit

Nude photos of French First Lady spice up Sarkozy's official UK visit Mar 26th, 2008 at 11:20AM: Carla Bruni: she might be an attractive wife, but she certainly does stir things up for her husband, French President Nicolas Sarkozy. She recently posed for popular men's magazine GQ, reminding us all that the First Lady is most definitely very attractive. Those super-model roots are causing a bit of havoc this week as Sarkozy makes his first official UK visit. Why? Because the official visit is...

Who's that hot woman? It's the First Lady of France

Who's that hot woman? It's the First Lady of France Mar 7th, 2008 at 6:00PM: Just when you thought Sarkozy drama (he's the much talked about French president, remember???) couldn't get any better, his wife Carla Bruni goes and poses nude for the April 2008 issue of GQ Magazine. Can you imagine any other First Lady posing sexily for a men's magazine? Oh la France, how you spice up the world. Sarkozy may have bad manners, but I think his wife one-ups him on scandal. Leave...
