Little Sympathy for French Angst

The responses to my last post appeared primarily concerned with the physics of the proposed change to the international definition of the kilogram. Little concern was voiced for the delicate sensitivities of the French as they prepare to lose yet another trapping of Francocentricity.

We seem unprepared to shed even a single tear as they confront the domination of American creativity exhibited in the exportation of such cultural icons as Big Macs, Survival reruns and football (the American version where they use steroids). I'm not confident that the emotional upheaval our European ally must be experiencing will be assuaged by another cafe au lait.
