French President Crashes at Former Microsoft Exec's Pad

Fun little story here about Nicolas Sarkozy, the still-new president of France and noted firebrand, going off on a couple of American photographers during Sarko's vacation in New Hampshire.

We throw this in because: 1) Your editor lived in France for almost five years and is a bit of a Francophile; 2) Your editor has also been to the lake where Sarko is vacationing (as have, we're guessing, most New Englanders); and 3) Sarko is crashing at Michael Appe's pad, and Appe is a former Microsoft executive, making this entry entirely relevant for RCPU. Or at least as relevant as the thing about Fake Steve Jobs.
