Vive la France

Speaking of jingoistic stupidity with regards to all things French, Chronicles has established a place where people so inclined can counter the, well, jingoistic stupidity regarding all things French. Sometimes I wonder if at least some of the "Two Minutes Hate" vitriol directed toward the French isn't the indirect result of banning ethnic jokes about a whole range of "protected minorities." Are Polish jokes still okay? I can't keep track anymore.

P.S. The blog I kept while visiting Paris last June is still up for anyone curious who never saw it. As I note in there, I found Parisians to be friendlier than New Yorkers.
