Dans les medias

My friend Jean was in town today for our friend Lynne's ordination. My friend Jean hosted me when I went to Paris a year ago and so I asked her what she thought of the great Harry Winston jewel heist. She had not heard of the Harry Winston jewel heist! Can you imagine? It's a good thing I'm here to fill her in on all the important Paris news. But really, how could you miss something with the headline: "Gunmen in drag get millions in Paris diamond heist".

Armed robbers wearing women's wigs and clothing made off with diamond rings, gem-studded bracelets and other jewelry worth $108 million from a Harry Winston boutique in Paris, in one of the world's largest jewel heists.

As Christmas shoppers strolled outside, the gunmen forced store employees to strip rings, necklaces and earrings from window displays and pull more out of safes, Isabelle Montagne, spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor's office, said Friday.

One commentator on sfgate said, "A good drag queen's gotta have the finest accessories, you know."
