Chirac Throws A Hissy Fit

French Prime Minister Jacques Chirac left a meeting in huff because a fellow Frenchman had the de-gall to speak English. There are those in France, and presumably elsewhere, who feel the hegemony of English needs to be opposed. Perhaps, but is ossified French culture the David that can defeat the English/American Goliath? I doubt it. My advice to the French would be to learn Arabic and practice being second class citizens in their own country, the later should come naturally to them.
