Back to the "freedom fries" thing for a minute: This issue makes me ashamed of our leaders--once again. Regardless of France's cooperation/non-cooperation with our military initiatives, a lame-ass, grossly sentimental gesture like this (i.e., renaming the fries) just illustrates the myopic, reactionary, self-centered, violent attitude that continues to make the rest of the world both laugh at us and fear us. And when I sear "fear", I mean that kind of fear you have of someone who is acutely paranoid and defensive. We are so out of touch. I wonder if Jones and Ney were listening to Lee Greenwood (warning: MIDI link) when they came up with this idea. Maybe this was on the wall of the conference room...
