Er, the President Misspoke

"Misspoke," that wonderful English word used by politicians to lift their errors into a limbo of forgiveness lavished upon those whose every utterance is exposed to public scrutiny, must now be applied to Nicolas Sarkozy, who confidently stated on Nov. 27 that there is no TGV to Strasbourg, and what a scandal this was. But there has been a TGV to Strasbourg for more than a year.
