This is just a beautiful photo, but also an eerie reminder of that movie of Ray Bradbury's novel where firemen STARTED fires instead of putting them out. They burned people's books so no one could be educated or an independent thinker. The movie, made in the 60's, shows every home with a large TV built into the wall - way before their time. People would sit in their homes and someone would give them directions through the TV. Whenever I see a digital wall TV now I think of that movie. This is where Michael Moore got the idea for his movie title "Fahrenheit 9/11" What a shame to waste such a cool title on such a bad movie.

It's actually a picture of French firefighters carrying flames in a strike demanding better pensions.
