I love the insinuation here. That Americans are a collective culture of disrespectful louts. I won't say anything personal about the French. I am French, though 200 years removed. However.... No. I wrote a page-length here using round-about language to disparage a certain individual, without being too direct about it. Among such language as the above being crude and disrespectful in and of itself, to suggest it's a "cultural" thing. Perhaps it is - the French, in general, it seems, are a sensitive culture, one which takes anything the wrong way at all possible instances. But, no, I'll tame myself, for the sake of the list, bandwidth, and general inter-personal representations presented via the list. However, should you dare to insult either one of my cultures - my centuries' old French culture, my newer American culture, or any of the others I claim as My Own - before me, I will not hold my tongue - or fingers, in this case. Since you don't know which cultures I am comprised of on a whole (I am an American Mutt, after all, though I can claim 5 distinct origins from the past 100-200 years), it would be prudent to make no such attacks at all. Wouldn't you agree? --Charles Proud to be American, AND French, despite the popular image these days of both.
