Dirty French Laundry
My friend Kurt points me to this interesting article in the UK's Guardian Unlimited about things France would rather you didn't know....of course for most of us informed political junkies the fact that France had an internment camp in WWII, and as France was being liberated (and for as long as 4 years after the end of the war) directly or indirectly made the internees disappear in order to hide this fact, comes as no surprise. Does this reflect on the current day French aristocracy? Well if you look at the UN Oil For Food scandal I think one can infer a long lineage of questionable French character.
