Tsk, tsk. Kids these days.

We've got three slabs of just-poured concrete, fresh this morning, in our yards. One's in the front and right next to the street, the other two are in back.

I checked the front slab when I got home, and then, appalled, checked the two in back. It was the same for all three.

What was there? Nothing. Three perfectly good slabs of wet concrete sitting next to an elementary school all day, and with the exception of a couple of halfhearted footprints in the front yard (and those were right next to the street!) there wasn't a mark on any of them.

Kids these days.

FRENCH MINSTERS have apologised for their behaviour over the war in Iraq. "We misunderstood the situation," explained Alain Pamplepaillionaisse earlier. "We had rather got the impression that collaborating unquestioningly with a violent, morally dubious superpower led by a dangerously nationalistic yet popular leader was frowned upon by the free world. How times have changed."
