12 (1 st Version) Nostalgia for the Small Bistro It seems that up until the seventies, when a teenager went home after school and asked naïvely, wheres dad? his mom replied, at the café. It must be said that at the time, there were about 220,000 cafés for a population of 46 million. Today there are not more than 65,000 cafés for 58 million people. And, yes, most of us have traded the short hour spent at the café talking about current events in the papers for a half-hour spent all alone with PPDA* in front of the television set! Lets not get too depressed, though, since it seems that little by little the French are returning to the tradition and that the bar is making a comeback. It has to be said that the news on television is getting more and more depressing, so it is preferable to go joke with others about the nonsense in the speeches for the presidential elections. *Patrick Poivre dArvor, famous news anchor for TF1 (Source text) La nostalgie du petit bistrot Il paraît que jusque dans les années soixante dix, quand un adolescent rentrait chez lui après lécole et quil demandait candidement il est où papa ?, la maman répondait au café. Il faut dire quà lépoque il y en avait pour une population de 46 millions dhabitants. Aujourdhui, ils ne sont plus que et nous sommes 58 millions. Et oui, la plupart ont troqué la petite heure passée au café à commenter lactualtié lue dans les journaux contre une demi-heure passée tout seul avec PPDA devant le poste de télévision ! Ne déprimons quand même pas trop puisquil semblerait que les français retournent à la tradition petit à petit et que le zinc fait de nouveau recette. Il faut dire que les infos à la télévision sont de plus en plus déprimantes, alors on préfère aller plaisanter avec dautres sur les inepties des discours pour les présidentielles.

13 (Revised) Nostalgia for the Corner Bistro It seems that up until the seventies, when a French teenager went home after school and offhandedly asked, Wheres Dad? his mom would reply, at the café. It must be said that at the time, there were about 220,000 cafés in France for a population of 46 million. Today there are only about 65,000 cafés and 58 million of us. Alas, most of us have traded our short hour spent at the café talking about the days headlines for a half-hour spent all alone in front of the TV with celebrity news anchor PPDA! Lets not get too depressed, though, since it seems that gradually the French are rediscovering the tradition and going back to the bistro. The news on television is getting increasingly depressing, so people prefer to go joke with others about the nonsense in the presidential campaign speeches.
