Pierre Paquet and Michel Fortin rehash old stuff

Howdy!

From the April 7th, 2005 issue of Hour magazine. An article by Jamie O'Meara about Billy Idol.
From the 25 août 2005 issue of Voir. An article by Jamie O'Meara about Billy Idol, translated into French.

Yes they are the same identical articles in different languages. I definitely need to see a hard copy to see if there is any notice of the French version being a reprint, because it doesn't appear anywhere on the web version.

Despite what I think about the quality of Mr. O'Meara's writing, I can't understand why Pierre Paquet and Michel Fortin (the publishers of Voir and Hour) would think that their readers would want to read a four and half month old article. Or is money so tight that next week they are going to translate Richard Burnett's article on Moby?
