Paris Mayor Pushes For Politeness, But Not Very Hard

As part of the first "Paris Tourist Day," Mayor Bertrand Delanoe has urged Parisians to be more polite. As part of the campaign, he's urged taxi drivers to smile more and local waiters to use more English.

When met with mild resistance, Delanoe immediately backed down.

"Just do whatever," he said. "I'm going to go eat some cheese."
