Addendum to [8611]:

If you thought "Freedom fries" were crazy, visit the
following site where right-wingers are promoting
a "French boycott" (!):
Although some parts of this site read like they were 
written tongue-in-cheek, other sections make it clear 
that this madness is real.  Warning: the above site contains
racist and national chauvinist language and slogans.

In solidarity, Jerry
