Jon Stewart on Sarkozy's US Visit


Guy Debord, "National Treasure"

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."
