gGood news & bad news (from france)
This is Melanie, TFA's biggest groupie, and I've snuck into the blog from Palaiseau, France to give you some good news and some bad news:
Bad news first. Check out this Washington Post article with terrifying news that you all might know about already:
Now for some good news from France, where one of the biggest runners for the 2007 Presidential election is...a woman! But it gets better: she is also a feminist, and yes, she actually uses the f-word. She's the candidate for the PS (Socialiast Party, which translates roughly to the Democrats...don't be scared by the term Socialist), and her name is Ségoline Royal.
Ms. Magazine is doing a piece on her one of these days, so keep your eyes peeled.
So, there you go. Hope all is well, TFAers, keep up the good work!
