A new report commissioned by the French Socialist government to make recommendations on how France can better integrate its residents of foreign origin has been described by former French Defense Minister Gerard Longuet as "organizing apartheid by inciting each community to affirm its difference," according to the French newspaper Le Figaro. I figured that had to be gross exaggeration -- until I read through the hundreds of pages myself. As a native Canadian, I couldn't help but notice that the French experts who compiled the report referred to the separatism-plagued French-Canadian province of Quebec as a "country" unto itself -- as in, "other countries, like Quebec.

Mary Beth Marsden yesterday went from the relative obscurity of weekend newscasting to co-anchoring the most-watched show in all of Baltimore TV. WMAR (Channel 2) picked Marsden, 32, to replace the departing Sally Thorner as co-anchor of its 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts starting Dec. 1.With the 5 o'clock news period becoming so lucrative and fiercely competitive that WJZ (Channel 13) is paying Thorner $250,000 next year to keep her off the air at Channel 2, the selection of Thorner's replacement is a major play in a high-stakes game.

Anne Moore Burnett knew the other moms at the playground were rolling their eyes at her. Her son wouldn't go down the slide unless it was clean, so she was looking around for a stray napkin or anything she could find to wipe it down. As she felt their eyes on her, Burnett found herself almost wishing her son had a visible condition, such as Down Syndrome, so that at least on top of the issues she was dealing with she wouldn't also feel judged by other parents who didn't realize she took these "extra" measures because her son has sensory-sensitive autism.

New calculations suggest a tiny chance that a large comet that is now nearing the sun may take a swipe at Earth when it returns again in 134 years.Although the chances of comet Swift-Tuttle hitting Earth in the year 2126 are extremely small, a collision could perhaps snuff out much of the life on Earth.The Earth's surface is marked by craters from such collisions. It is thought that such an incident 60 million years ago erased much of the life on Earth, including the dinosaurs.The comet is thought to be a chunk of ice and rock about 6 miles in diameter, moving in an orbit that takes it close to the sun every 130 years.

It would seem that we're now at the stage of global economic lunacy where the worldwide socialist slide is so far gone that the president of Russia is lecturing the world, and particularly Europe, about the risks of socialism. Speaking at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference in Vladivostok, Russia, Vladimir Putin promoted the merits of free-market economics. He said that by pulling the former Soviet satellite states into its sphere after the fall of the Iron Curtain, Europe chose to take responsibility for subsidizing their economic well-being.

If Justin Bieber or the Rolling Stones suddenly decided to stage an impromptu concert in a public place somewhere in America without a permit, would the authorities ignore it and shrug it off? Doubtful. Even buskers performing in the New York Citysubway system can't play without formal authorization from the city. What about taking such a musical performance into a church? If Jennifer Lopez or Madonna just showed up in a place of worship, stripped down to their skivvies and started dancing around the altar, would that fly in any Western democracy?

Testifying before a Senate committee a few months ago, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lamented that America was "in an information war, and we are losing that war. " This week, she blew a fuse at the "Friends of Syria" meeting in Paris, saying that Russia and Chinashould "pay a price" for not supporting regime change in Syria. Here's a thought: How about using the power of truth to get things done rather than cover and manipulation? Russia and China aren't following America's script for one reason: They have major economic interests in Syria and rightfully see any attempt at regime change as America trying to steal their lunch.

Improved technology is changing the spy game, merging once-disparate roles in the intelligence field and favoring an increased download of traditional spy roles to the private sector. This week, Canada's Postmedia News cited a speech by Richard Fadden, the head of Canada's spy agency, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, in which he acknowledged this new reality. "In today's information universe of WikiLeaks, the Internet and social media, there are fewer and fewer meaningful secrets for the James Bonds of the world to steal," Mr. Fadden said.

As European leaders meet this week in an attempt to once again shoo reality away from the continent's respirator, countries outside the European Union are making it increasingly clear that they'll have no role in prolonging the charade. Cyprus has just asked for a bailout from the EU's ATM, joining Greece, Ireland, Portugal and, most recently, Spain. So what's the excuse this time? Apparently Cyprus' intimate exposure to the Greek economy was more than enough economic Ebola. So another beggar's cup starts rattling just in time for yet another summit of European leaders.

Did you hear about the new bill that would allow the U.S. government's official overseas information agency to rebroadcast its content onto American TV and radio? The bipartisan Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012 was introduced in Congress last week by Reps. Mac Thornberry, a Texas Republican, and Adam Smith, a Washington Democrat, both of whom are presumably dissatisfied with their satellite TV package and think more government-produced content would go down better with an after-work beer.

While your co-workers hover around the water cooler debating whether it matters if Mitt Romney bullied some kid in his youth, a formerly First World nation called Greece is teetering on the brink of bankruptcy. Why, you might ask, should Middle America pry its overworked eyes away from Jennifer Lopez gyrating around in a bodysuit on "American Idol" long enough to bother caring? Now replace "Greece" with "your bank. " It suddenly matters a little more, doesn't it? What if your bank couldn't loan you money, give you a mortgage or allow you to ring up credit-card debt, all because the bank abruptly had much less with which to leverage your lifestyle since Greece decided to finally pull itself off fiscal life support?

Francehas elected only the second Socialist president in its history -- the first being Francois Mitterrand, who spent 14 years in the driver's seat back when French presidential terms lasted seven years rather than five, and who made a hard-right turn away from economic socialism and toward spending cuts after his first two years in office. The best France can hope for now is that the newly elected Francois Hollande takes a similar plunge into a pothole of pragmatism and douses any budding socialist ideas.
