French Ecology Minister Segolene Royal declared on Tuesday that a proposed new ban on using open fireplaces in the Paris region was "excessive".

The French front pages are coming down with a bad dose of the Nicolas Sarkozys this morning. The man is everywhere, and the tone is menacing, not to say martial.
