While we were out: Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Princess Charlene of Monaco, Juan Valdez, Rob Lowe

The Reliable Source was off for the holiday weekend, but here's what happened in our absence:

The Dominique Strauss-Kahn case triggered a major media culture clash – between the “gleefully francophobic tabloids” of New York (some of the richer headlines: “Chez Perv,” “French Whine!”, “No erci!”) and the protective but sometimes undiscriminating French press, reports our colleague Jason Horowitz. Meanwhile, DSK and his wife kept a decidedly low profile in Washington. (But you knew that.)
