individually writing to G to opt out isnt necessary here ..but insufficient numbers of people realise that ..
And no one in govt had the smarts to throw the camera cars out when they came as they began with the "Tour de France" route in Brittany ( well a few complained it wasnt legal ..but were told to shut up by the others ..who though WOW google ..free publicity !) and most people including our legislature went weak at the knees and in the brain too at the "compliment" that they thought G were paying us ..
Flattery by outsiders to a sense of ones country being the center of the cultural universe ..Has oft led to our leaders letting the rest of us down ..
Guess we are just going to have to counter the G PR machine by pointing out the "mondialisation" and the loss of jobs to the tourist industry ( and to home grown media organistaions ) if G isnt told to back off and pull all their images of french ( in compliance with current french law ) "places" until they are "opt in" ..
Damn.. there is always something stops one from taking a rest ..
