- Here's sheer joy. Webb wins 1500 in 3:30.
- This is nuts. The French are criticizing their President for running, with one hoity toity philosopher begging Mr. Sarkozy
to abandon his “undignified” pursuit. He should take up walking, like Socrates, Arthur Rimbaud, the poet, and other great men, said Mr Finkelkraut.
“Western civilisation, in its best sense, was born with the promenade. Walking is a sensitive, spiritual act. Jogging is management of the body. The jogger says I am in control. It has nothing to do with meditation.”
Finkelraut needs to step off his ivory tower. Running has no politics.
