Ms. Miami, a frequent commenter on this blog was a guest writer earlier today, on Super Frenchie. She has always been gracious and eloquent in her disagreements here, and has always been a welcome addition to the discussions.
I would like to ask you to take a moment and read her piece entitled, Le Starbucks. It isn't long, it isn't confrontational, it isn't about politics. It is, however, about culture and perception and is very much, worth the read. (I would have linked to it earlier but I have been very busy, and didn't get to read her post, until now.)
Check it out, when you get a chance, will you?.
