Talented French Driver

Some would argue the headline above is an oxymoron, but consider this:

HEADLINE: Driver rams into French student protestors

DATELINE: PARIS, April 7 2006

A driver rammed into a group of French students protesting in central Paris against the government's youth jobs law on Friday, injuring nine people, police said.

Four students were knocked down and one of them was dragged along several metres, according to an AFP photographer at the scene.

Police chased and stopped the driver, ordering him out of his car, which was immediately set upon and overturned by angry students. The driver also suffered slight injuries.

According to police, he appeared to have headed deliberately for the group of students.
Pity the poor students who were injured. Of course, if they had a job and were at work, this wouldn't have happened. French students working ... now there's an oxymoron!
