What a completely useless, bullshiat story. How about giving us some population numbers, both pre- and post-"exodus"? Was the population increasing/declining/holding steady before the airport was built, and how much and how soon did it decline after CDG began operating? This "journalist" needs to go back to J1.

Interesting photos, but they don't really tell us all that much.

Lady J: subtle xenophobia from subby there, or am I just being ultra sensitive

Any time France is mentioned around here, the concept of surrender must be included in the headline or the article won't be greenlit.

/I tihnk it's because the sites run by 12 year olds from middle America.
