About Yesterday

All morning I had a line from my paper in my head: "The French Government doesn't think so." It was the one sentence in my whole presentation I wasn't sure how to intone.

My talk was about violence on YouTube and in it, I discuss how last year the French Government passed legislation that outlawed the filming of violent acts by any citizen who is not a professional journalist. Bloggers, amateur documentary filmmakers or those filming to collect evidence of a crime are not exempt.

In the end when it was time for my paper, that line found its own place and my ideas waved in the breeze of the day, like a flag.
