The Freeman's Burden:

To defend the principles of human liberty; to educate; to be vigilant against the ever expanding power of the state.

Bush Re-elected, French not crying in the streets

Dateline: Vannes, France

Much to my surprise, the French have reacted with resignation to this weeks re-election of George Bush. While many express a lack of understanding into the American mindset, that is pretty typical. On an unrelated topic, this country continues to hold its collective breath in the hopes that Arafat will recover. I didnt have the heart to tell them that I was hoping the exact opposite. None the less, the food is wonderful, the people warm (something Americans refuse to believe) and the sense of self-rightiousness undeterred. C est la vie.
