Attack in church in France perpetrated by suspect on home detention

Donald Trump is saying, “France is no longer France”, the day after a brutal slaying (and hostage taking) in a Catholic church in St. Etienne du Rouvray on July 26, with the CNN story on increased security measures here.

One of the attackers had been on house arrest with an ankle monitor but had been living in the town.
I visited the area in May 1999, and stayed in Bayeux, where I lost my rent car keys while in the “William the Conquerer” museum.  Hotel keys are just too big and force out other pocket contents when traveling.
