This unusual degree of pain signaled concern for the attending physicians and prompted additional tests this afternoon. In the past hour these tests have revealed that Dr. Mohler is suffering from pulmonary emboli in both lungs. His condition is quite serious and he has been moved to the intensive care unit of Baptist East Hospital in Louisville, KY for immediate treatment.

Scenes of urban mayhem filled the cable news programs in recent days as university students and their allies filled the streets of Paris with rioting and protests. The students want no changes to France’s impossible and impractical labor laws — laws which currently make it virtually impossible for French employers to eliminate any job or fire any worker, however justified such a firing might be. Given the currrent laws, employers are just not hiring young people. One might think that the young would look with favor at changes that might open jobs. But not these students. They want a job from which they can never be fired, or no job at all.
