France: This Time it’s Personal

by Jonah Goldberg

I know there’s been a lot of love around here for France since they elected Sarkozy. That’s all fine, but it doesn’t make up for the fact that I just spent the last half-hour on the phone dealing with the news that someone in that steaming cauldron of iniquity has charged a couple thousand dollars on a credit card number stolen from me. Yes, yes, collective punishment is wrong. But I don’t care. Today I say J’Accuse! to the French Nation.

Update: Just to head-off a lot of nice e-mail coming my way, in response to your inquiries, everything’s being handled and all (French) charges will be removed from  my account.
