THE GOOD LIAR

1.  At The Movies

Susie and I have just returned from THE GOOD LIAR, a vehicle for two splendid actors, Ian McKellan and Helen Mirren.  Both give fine performances.  It is worth a trip to the flics.

2.  I Am All For Unions, But Really

Susie and I are booked on the direct Delta/Air  France RDU-Paris flight on December 6th, returning December 23rd.  I have just learned that the Air France ground crews have scheduled a strike for December 5th, this to support the Metro, Bus, RER, and TGV workers who are about to go on strike.  The ground crew strike is currently billed as a one day affair, but there is no telling whether they will extend it.  At issue is the government's plan to change, and presumably reduce, pensions.  I think it is very much an open question whether we will make it to Paris.  Fortunately, this time, for the very first time, I bought trip insurance.

Unions in Europe it seems like to flex their muscle, such as it is, from time to time.
All in all, a good thing I suppose, inconvenient though it always is for travelers.

Thanks for the movie tip. Here's another: Official Secrets, a film based on the life of whistleblower Katharine Gun who leaked a memo detailing that the United States had eavesdropped on diplomats from countries tasked with passing a second United Nations resolution on the invasion of Iraq. Well done and faithful to the true story, I thought. Suspenseful too, in spite of the fact that we know the ending.

By the way, your charming stories about your experiences had during your morning walks was billed as "This is My Life;" could just as easily been billed as "WRITING: This is My Life"
