Speaking of animal rights, silliness isn’t uniquely American. The French have their own share of curious folk. According to AFP reports, Jacques Peyrat, mayor of Riviera city Nice, was accused of being cruel towards rat he killed last week. The report noted that Peyrat was visiting a trash collection area in Nice’s historic center when he spotted “a rat almost as big as a cat.” He grabbed a shovel and brought it down on rodent, killing it.
France’s Society for Protection of Animals (SPA) has lodged a criminal complaint against Mayor. The report quoted SPA’s regional chief as saying, “A huge rat-clearing operation is necessary, but nothing justifies going off on a punitive expedition against these animals, which are attracted to trash cans left out at night in Old City by restaurants.”

Upon entering Marysville, Tennessee, Edgerton took time to lambaste flag-banning school board for practicing what he termed, “cultural genocide” that is dividing blacks and whites, according to Marysville Daily Times.
“I’m just an ordinary country boy from South who loves Southland,” he added. Edgerton, by way, is black. And that causes one to wonder if he would agree that Arlen Spector’s attack on Robert Bork was, indeed, out of line.
