Kim du Toit gives input and opinions here on today’s generation of Frenchmen/(women?), plus a New Feature. "I am proud to offer a new feature, which is called News From The Front The writer is a captain in the U.S. Air Force stationed somewhere Over There (for future reference, let's just call him "Captain Steve"), and he emailed me a while ago with some random gun stuff, and then got down to telling me about life Over There. This was too good just to leave in Reader Mail, so I've created (or, to be truthful, The Mrs. has created) a new department to hold the correspondence. All responses to Captain Steve will be posted in Reader Mail for him and his squadron to read. Here are the first two entries: Part I and Part II. If you didn't like the French before, you are really going to hate them now... snail-eating bastards." (Indigo note: Don’t miss Part II.)
