Man is that place in trouble (link from Castle Arghh). My wife and I have talked about visiting Paris but even though I spent some time there as a kid I have zero desire to participate in a Beyond Thunderdome race war with a baby and a tender back. Read the excellent Theodore Dalrymple piece on the nightmare brewing in the banlieus here (Link via Allah blogging at Michelle Malkin's place) and tell me you'd take your family anywhere near that.
Genealogically, I'm half Frenchy via Canada, but this last 60 years or so have been too disastrous for France to keep any loyalty I may be inclined to feel. France, you're dead to me.
