Lately the French have been getting bad press in America, but do we owe them better than we are giving them?
In an op-ed in the New York Times, my favorite author, David McCullough, writes about what we owe the French, including our victory in the Revolutionary War. He also reminds us how much we still love anything French, whether we realize it or not.
So this Bastille Day, maybe we should, as David writes, "raise a glass or two of Veuve Clicquot in a heartfelt toast: 'Vive la France!'”
