Today, exactly 60 years after Paris was liberated from the occupation by Nazi Germany, I will start writing my PhD thesis. The frequency of postings on my weblog in the coming year will be lower than that to which you ( and I ) have become used since I started my blog.

Here are some examples of comics that made me laugh or smile.
