Good morning. Isn't it?

Greetings from La Rochelle, France, where I'm trying to avoid reading headlines about the crashing markets (though I was happy to read polling shows even a majority of Republicans believe that reducing government in the face of a recession without including a tax increase to get books balanced makes sense only to Tea Party and billionaire enablers like Tim Griffin, Rick Crawford and Steve Womack.)

Somebody said food. How about a platter of fresh seafood — shrimp, langoustine, crab, mussels, oysters and other stuff — at a harborside cafe? Below, for war buffs, the entrance to the U-boat pens at La Rochelle, a German fortress until the end of the war, where "Das Boot" was filmed. It's the best shot I could manage from my passing bus. The installation is in the midst of a busy commercial port and unused.
