The Decline of France

I enjoy taking a poke at France as much as the next person, but I should say that Shelly and I went to Paris and Cassis on our honeymoon two years ago and we had a wonderful time. I liked France a great deal, and I do feel some affection for it. The French people were much nicer to us than I expected, given their reputation, and I haven’t seen a city anywhere that can rival Paris in either beauty or culture.
Roger L. Simon just got back from a trip to France where he did some research for a novel. He filed this report, and I’m sorry to say that it isn’t looking good for them.
