The News in French

The pictures I posted of French newsbabe Melissa Theuriau yesterday aroused (I think that’s the mot juste) great interest in a large segment of the NRO readership.

(Of course, if you can’t understand French, the clips won’t make much sense. To the reader-segment I am addressing, this won’t matter a bit.)
