If I'm reading this mix of hard news, analysis and rhetorical questions correctly, it looks like there are a few news items worthy of note surrounding the Festival International de la Bande Dessinee in Angouleme. First, they have a new president, founder Francis Groux. Second, Gerard Balesiane and Ludovic Blanchier were made vice-president and treasurer, respectively. Third, the deficit caused by 2006's show with its construction problems and non-glamorous Grand Prix winner may not have been as big as first expected. There's also some sort of museum dispute reported in that piece that I'm not getting at all.
