More French Inanity

The Ottawa Citizen's John Robson reports: "In a state-owned TV channel Top 100 French people poll, a certain 'Napoleon' misses the Top 10 cut, placing 16th (one viewer offers the deep historical insight "He was short, arrogant and I wouldn't have voted for him"). Louis XIV comes 50th, 16 places behind Johnny Hallyday (qui?) and Francois Mitterrand who, at No. 22, also beats Joan of Arc (31). I bet she's burned." Sorry, no link yet, but Robson will eventually post this story to his blog (LINK).
