French Prime Meridian  JUL 01 1999

The French are kinda funny...both "ha-ha" funny and "strange" funny. Rather than accept the British Prime Meridian, the French are going on their own with the French Prime Meridian. Now, I'm all for challenging standards, but it helps to have a better reason than, "Hey, look at us! We're cool too!"
