So I happened to be watching TV this morning when the ceremony welcoming France’s philandering President (redundant, I know) Hollande to the White House was going on. Classic, very nice ceremony with Hail to the Chief, the Star-Spangled Banner, and the French national anthem, the Marseillaise.
Now I’m no great fan of France, well, except for their food, wine, culture, etc. But the French themselves, eh. But I have always been extremely fond of their national anthem. And for this I credit Messrs. Bogart and Henreid. And Ingrid Bergman, who I love.
