    You need to watch French in Action. Calling it a “cultural phenomenon” probably does not do it justice. It’s intoxicating, as is the female lead. Were she not French–and therefore an idle communist–she would have been a shoo-in for Dayn Perry’s “beautiful women” folder.

    Whose holiday plans? How am I to know whose holiday travel plans Romain is explaining? If only antecedents were clarified, his problem (i.e.: Carson’s problem) could have been averted.
