People walk past as a homeless person takes cover from the cold on a Paris sidewalk November 28, 2005, as six homeless have died in France since the arrival of winter temperatures. French authorities have raised their weather alert in 31 departments and asked for increased vigilance to the homeless in Paris.
You would think the burning cars would keep them warm.
Ohhh Lordy....next thing you know..we'll have a flood of French immigrants coming across our borders...!
I think the homeless are on their own.
I'm willing to bet that most people in France have no idea what "cold" is. If it isn't cold enough to freeze the moisture in your eyes, it ain't cold!
Urban outdoorsmen die because France signed the Kyoto treaty, leading to massive global cooling.
I think the Alps get kinda chilly, but I don't think Paris can compete with Chicago or Boston (or Minnesota!!!) for cold.
When are the French going to be critical of themselves and start solving their own problems? Ahhhh...methinks, never.
They're not feasting on all the car-b-q?
Even the French will admit France is miserable. Employment is down. Regulation is obscene. The riots were allowed to go on. And the Left would like America to be more French! Can you say, "No thanks!"
--fortunately, I had no coffee in my mouth when I read that--
Well, if families can't bother to call elderly parents in un air-conditioned apartments back home while they vacation during searing heat in August, then I don't expect them to care for the homeless on their streets. Unless they stumble over them and need them out of the way.
In the pic, there's a gal walking around with short pants and no socks. Can't be that cold.
Put them up in the Louvre and give them some wine and cheese.
Don't be too sure about that. Some folks are downright polar bear in their tolerance. ;)
I blame global warming! ;)
LOL - shouldn't have read your post with my mouth full (lunch time).
Chronic Unemployment - my brother in law in Paris took two years off of work @ 80% pay, benefits run out next month. He sent out one resume and got a job immediately.
