Guy Debord, whom the French authorities would probably have liked to get rid of while he was alive, has now been deemed a "national treasure." His papers will not go to Yale, which wanted them, but will remain in France, at a price of some 2 to 3 million euros. Life is full of ironies. If you're too young to remember the Situationists, know simply that "bliss was it in that dawn to be alive."
