FLG Learned Something New Today

FLG learns something new everyday, but he's not sure how he missed this before. He was reading this blog post when he came across this term:
Garde des Sceaux

It translates to Keeper of the Seals, which FLG hadn't heard before, but thought it must either be some Lord of the Rings reference he doesn't get or a euphemism for who knows what, but probably something sexual. Neither made sense in context.

Anyway, it turns out that Garde des Sceaux is the title of the French Justice minister, which makes perfect sense because the subject of the post was Rachida Dati, who was justice minister.
