This Was Metropole One Year Ago:

Issue 2.21 - 26. May 1997 - There were two 'FlashNews' items added to thecount down Eiffel Tower issue: 'Alain Juppé Will Not Renew' and 'Louvre Reopens After Strike.' The issue featured the columns - Café Metropole - 'There Goes the Neighborhood' and 'Au Bistro' had - 'Tapie Trial Takes Dramatic Turn.' The articles in the issue were 'Elections '97 - Leftist Parties Gain Slight Lead' - 'Montsouris - Seriously High on the Left Bank' and 'Cité Universitaire - Paris' Park Hotel for Scholars.' Mike Harmon wrote to tell everybody about 'Half of the Day After the Day Before.' There were two 'Posters of the Week' and Ric's Cartoon of the Week was called 'If You Do Vote, Vote for Somebody,' which caused all readers to yawn a little.

The Tour Eiffel Countdown to 31. December 1999:

Only 586 days left to go.
