So there you have it, me being a hep-cat, a cool daddy-o, a mature figure of respect among skateboard kid subculture, and generally seen as unflappable. But I have my limits, like encountering those who denigrate French culture without any grasp of its deep and enduring beauty and importance to our beautiful civilization. Then, when I hear those goofs slagging Racine, dumping on Satie, well, it's the gloves off, buddy, 'cause there's only so much a cool and easy-going guy will put up with. Don't like Durufle or Dore or Dufy? Ha!
But things are looking up, and I don't think I'll be fighting on the sidewalk again over a white Pouilly Fuissé vs. a Bordeaux pinot noir. Nope, it's looking good for things French as we see them.
