The following is an open letter to the French Ambassador to the United States, His Excellency, Francois Delattre:
Dear Mr. Ambassador,
Our countries have a long history together. And, we Americans are not particularly gracious in granting any nation any gratitude -- or even, any latitude.
(This recalcitrance could be the result of our being a still-adolescent nation, one with inflamed hormones and short attention spans, and a terribly self-centered upbringing.)
