This week, you are going to notice a few of my “tropisms.” I have a soft spot for revolutionary movements, and it’s a genuine pleasure to see every day in the papers those spirits and bodies reacting against the elements of a priggish, know-it-all society. They are the ones occupying the square of Saint Paul’s Cathedral in London, the ones resisting in Dale Farm, the ones fighting in Sirte, and all the others whom we never see but about whom I think. The commentary expressed about a subject by any publication is always a pleasure to read, so I will gladly remove the by-lines from my own commentary. Switzerland brings us joy, a quiet little joy... France is in crisis with the rugby World Cup on Sunday, and even if Carla has given us an heiress, the succession will be difficult... Have a good week.
