My comment:
(a) Gallic (adj): "of or relating to Gaul or France"

My comment:
(a) “The Gallic” is similar to “the rich”--to signal a group of people.
(b) The introduction to the writer is at the end of the essay. A Paris-based subsidiary of New York Times Company, International Herald Tribune was renamed a year ago as International New York Times.
