An American in Lyon

As an American living in France, I've been under a lot of pressure the last year. I guess if you listen to all the nay-sayers about France, that makes good sense. The only problem with this is the source of my anxiety. It wasn't the French. No, it was all of the reactionary Americans, both in America and residing in France. All the reactionary fuckers who think that being an American gives them unlimited license to do whatever they chose, whenever they chose, and expect there to be no consequences for their actions. Those are the people that have me stressed.

Glad you feel at home in France, Damelon.
