The president of France's state-run railroad resigned Sunday after the second fatal train crash in six weeks. The government blamed the crash in part on a failure to implement measures ordered after an earlier wreck. Unions blamed the government for Saturday's crash and accused it of skimping on safety to save money. It said that the resignation of Philippe Rouvillois, who had been railway president six months, would only camouflage the problem.

You're going to Europe and you want to see the Continent California-style: by car. Should you rent, buy or lease? Should you make arrangements before you leave or after you arrive?

Make your reservations in advance, before you leave the States, by calling (800) 252-9401 from California or New York, or (800) 223-1516 from the rest of the nation.
