Is Canonization Ahead?

With hagiography like this, we should expect that the Honorary Canon of Saint John Lateran can look forward to rapid canonization, should he ever pass on to a better world--though it's hard to imagine anything better than France under Sarkozy if one watches this program. Charles Bremner says all that needs to be said.

there's been talk in the American end of the internets of the irremediable decline of the mainstream press outlets due to economic reasons, and for reasons related to political complicity, the degeneracy of insiderness, professional integrity, etc.
I'd like to think the same is occuring in France, given the subserviance of state-run TV points in the same direction, but then I'm reminded that there'll always be a State which will hone media outlets to suit its purposes, be they radio, TV or internet.

Bremner's last point is true, too. I had a great time chez les pompiers last night!
