A Frenchman Writes

Regarding my column today praising the good things about France, a Frenchman (with a governmental e-mail address, no less) writes:

Just one word: thank you.

And, well, I agree with the “treacherous creeps” part, too. I’ll be showing the American military cemetery in Normandy to my own son next week-end. He, for one, will not grow up to become a Villepin.

Times will get better, eventually. In the meantime, God bless America for doing in Iraq what it did on our soil, twice, at a horrible price.

I’m so grateful for Frenchmen like this reader. They do exist, and Americans would do well to remember that rather than reducing the entire nation and its people to a caricature.
