    Leaving aside the “David” typo, I can’t figure out if this guy is Patrick or Patrice. The French media calls him Patrice, but he seems to go by Patrick as well. I will try to think up a bizarre conspiracy theory to explain this, involving Lyndon LaRouche and Bane from the Batman movie. I mean Bain. I mean, Bane. Aztek. No, Aztec. Aztek? Siena? Sienna? Maybe I should quit while I am ahead…

    Oh great, now I find him as Patrick Pélata. With an accent. Maybe he is actually Basque, Pelota. I quit.

    Good riddance.
