I read in amazement in all of the daily newspapers and recoiled in abject horror when I heard it quoted in the electronic media about a faux pas.
This in reference to a letter from the office of the Head of State to the head of Government in this Republic.
What is really going on in this place? Is all lost?
To me there is a complete breakdown of all rationality and good ole common knowledge. Faux pas—French—when translated literally means “false step”. This particularly applies in social and etiquette settings.
