Raining Frogs

The French and The Dutch have "slapped the left cheek and the right cheek of the European Union" by voting no to a constitution for the EU. Full details here.

The Prime Minister of Luxembourg was upset about the outcome of the French and Dutch votes. I, for one, was glad to see it voted down. It all seemed a bit off to me. It would be one thing if all the EU countries were young countries in need of a greater guidance, but they are all well-established countries with their own constitutions and ways of government. Each country is completely able to stand on its own without the parental guidance of an EU constitution.

It's the first time in a long time I've been proud of the French.

Speaking of the French, The Louvre is getting a new website that will be launched next week.
www.louvre.fr is the site.
