Maddow: I had heard the news about how huge the rally was in Paris this weekend. I had read the reports about what it was like, there on the ground.

Vu que personne ne pouvait avancer, ma voisine a eu l'excellente idée de sortir sa chaîne stéréo et de passer des classiques. Grand moment d'émotion et de communion, totalement improvisé.
Since no one could move, my neighbor had the excellent idea to get his stereo and switch classics. Very emotional moment and communion, completely improvised.
