A New French Hero

NPR reports that Jerome Kerviel, the rogue trader who lost Société Générale $7 billion, has become a folk hero of the French left for exposing the weaknesses of "Anglo-Saxon capitalism."

A few more revolutionary successes like this and France -- unofficial motto: "One Nation Above God" -- won't have to worry about capitalism any more. It will join North Korea -- official motto: "Powerful and Prosperous Nation" -- at the vanguard of human progress.
