L’État, ce n’est pas moi
You win some; you lose some.
Today, May 6, 2012, that guy up there, whose name is Nicolas Sarkozy, lost an election in France to another guy named François Hollande.
Today some people in France might be saying, “The 23rd President of the French Republic is figuratively dead; long live the 24th President of the French Republic!”
And others might be saying, “Aux armes, citoyens!”
I mean, after all, it is France.
You just never know.
Ever heard of Jeanne d’Arc? Looey Quatorze? Robespierre?
The really important news this weekend, though, happened in Louisville, Kentucky, where a horse named I’ll Have Another came from behind to win the 138th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs (2:18).
Now that was a horse race.
