Thousands of students, some hurling eggs and others smashing windows, marched nationwide Friday in the largest protests in two weeks of strikes over violence and overcrowding in French high schools. Prime Minister Michel Rocard promised to create thousands of new jobs to improve crumbling, crime-ridden high schools. But a student leader said Rocard had failed to address basic demands for more teachers and security guards.

A national strike against French government plans to raise the retirement age gained momentum Tuesday, thanks to broader participation by education, energy and transportation workers, augmented by high school students. Flights were canceled, train service was spotty and even the Eiffel Tower was closed to visitors, as protesters expressed their displeasure with the move to raise the legal retirement age from 60 to 62. The Interior Ministry estimated that 1.23 million people took part in the job actions, and union representatives placed the figure at 3.5 million.

Oh, she will smile and politely protest that her training "is more intense, if not as long" as a distance regimen. Everyone else will swim for miles and miles, but Garcia believes less can be better.
