@Cassia She didn’t teach French but she did a BA degree in it and I remember she said she had no idea why!

Apart from Monsieur le Président´s attempt to appeal to the masses with this, Jo certainly deserves an honneur like that. :) However, there´s a medal given out annually in Stockholm, Sweden, that is far more intersting. :-) But she´s still young. :)

Hm. Cool. I wonder if Jo still speaks French relatively well. I think it’s really cool that she used to teach it.
