Ahh irony, how I love thee

First, I find it totally ironic that while I’m in Mexico there are strikes and protests in the US about pending immigration legislation. Someone has a great sense of humor.
 
Second, while the (mainly) Mexicans are protesting and striking for the right to work, the French are protesting for the right not to work. Ah yes, the French, often the butt of my jokes. Can you blame me? http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20060328/wl_nm/france_dc_22

    The disaffected youth of France embrace their cultural right to burn cars and torch multinational businesses.  Unlike us, they HAVE NO OTHER societal means of expressing their futility.
    America — win the World Series, SB or the NCAA Final Four and go tear down and riot in your hometown.  UK — football hooligans.  Germany & Russia — neo ultra-nationalists.
    I heartily support the French in their quest to maintain the highest standard of living while doing nothing.  Bring on the East Europeans!

    Naw the French play rugby and football, too. I guess they could be hooligans if they weren\’t afraid of getting beat up.
