Sarkozy Does His Part to Save the Necktie

Despite reports that the necktie is dead, French President Nicolas Sarkozy is doing his part to ensure the survival of those "lovely silken things" that hang around men's necks. In fact, some female MPs say he is taking his one-man mission to an extreme.
Instead of wearing them as headbands, I have a more lucrative proposal for gender-sensitive French MPs. Auction your pale gray ties on ebay, and donate the proceeds to charity. And perhaps next year, Sarkozy can make amends by distributing handbags or heels.
