European Social Democracy Here We Come Pt. 1

From today's WSJ (link here for subscribers) we learn employees at a 3M plant in, wait for it, France, have taken their manager hostage to protest planned layoffs.

I'm working on a longer form post on the how the Obama administration is positioning its budget proposal (IMHO it will put the country on an irreversible path toward European Social Democracy, which of course is exactly what the left wants) as the, and the only, thing keeping this country from falling into an economic abyss (i.e. selling fear just like the left accused the prior administration of doing).  But, in the meantime, enjoy the sad but funny parallel of the 3M story and the picture of downtown Paris.
