My friend Lisa is studying in London (So is, incidentially, Timothy Gray of the Pennsylvania Gazette). She emails us here at home awesome stuff about her travels through London and Western Europe.
She hasn't said anything about them hating us. In fact, she's having a blast and I really wish I did study abroad. I think I will. Who cares if it takes me 6 years to get my undergrad degree (well my parents will). . . I'm going to spend at least 4 more getting a Masters and maybe ...just maybe...a doctorate. *
So perhaps all those neo-con arguments that the French hate us are specious and stupid, which they are.
