I don't know if you noticed the ignorant piece of junk published as an 
obituary for Derrida in the NY Times:

http://www.nytimes.com/2004/10/10/obituaries/10derrida.htm

There's a protest effort against it:

I remember the same thing happening after Edward Said's death.

Compare this to the 10-page Le Monde take:
