Easy Post

I've been busy today and haven't had time to post much, so I'll whip one out thats easy. I'll just make fun of France. Ike sent me a poem that is pretty good. It isn't as funny as the Military History of France though.

Here is an odd historical reference: Did you realize that the white flag was actually used as the French national flag? Ok, it's not entirely true. The flag was white with little fleur-de-lis on it you couldn't really see. It was the symbol of the Bourbon kings. Perhaps this was a major breakthrough in french military tactics, since the enemy couldn't tell if the french were marching on the attack or surrender...
