Vive la France!   1 comment

We have long had a love-hate relationship with France and the French. I’m on the love side, but I’m a bit prejudiced about it – my high school French teacher was a big influence on my life, many of my favorite musicians have been, and are, French, and a beloved uncle was at D-Day! Here’s an excellent article from today’s New York Times by the renowned historian David McCullough that puts the relationship in some perspective. To paraphrase Albert Camus, there is more to admire than to despise about it! Vive la France!
