Denis Boyles on EuroPress on National Review Online: "Lazy days. The French government, in an effort to find a little scratch to pay for the health and welfare of the elderly poor and sick, is trying to convince the workers of France to maybe pony up a little extra in taxes and give up one of their many, many paid holidays. Liberation reports that Raffarin is considering making the Monday following Pentecost a regular work day. The workers, of course, are furious, adds Liberation, perhaps because of the deeply held conviction by most socialists that spending an extra 24 hours prayerfully contemplating the descent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples of Christ is a sacred right. Or possibly they're lazy."
