In at least one way France is ahead of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Thetheory are going after officials who pass out no-show jobs. Yesterday's International Herald Tribune had an article on the conviction of former Resident Jacques Chirac, 79, of corruption and gave him a two year suspened sentence. The crimes happened when he was the Mayor of Paris.
Lesson Learned? Even the French can, from time to time, move to clean up their political scene. The question is, can we?
Supplemental Lesson Learned is that justice does not require a sledge hammer. It can be administered with a rolled up newspaper.
