Adieu, PPDA

Patrick Poivre d'Arvor just signed off for the last time. He went out with class, citing Shakespeare. I wasn't sorry to see him go, but whenever a monument falls, it marks yet another step on our way to dusty death. For 20 years PPDA's career embraced all our yesterdays. His demise will not, however, mark the last syllable of recorded time. Harry Roselmack replaces him starting tomorrow. Then, at summer's end, Laurence Ferrari will brighten the screen. Diversity comes to TF1.

Yes, for those who don't know, Harry is one of the few non-whites on the news in France (at least among the anchors).

Re: an earlier post

Do you know if there's any way to see/hear Obama in Paris in July?

I will be there and would be interested in seeing him address the French.

Thanks.

P.S. Great blog. I've been lurking for a long time. I'm a recent BU grad and found this blog when researching Sego in Boston.

Lauren, No, I don't, but let me know if you find out. I'd love to see him in Paris as well.

I agree, I was very impress by his class and dignity to say good bye. After 2 decades something will be very different now, we know what we loose we don't know what.... From one to millions without seeing these millions how will you feel after? Wonderfull
