The French don't give a shit about your boycott -- they're worried about the GaultMillau after Bernard Loiseau killed himself when his rating slipped from 19 to 17 [NYT]
``I am sure that Bernard was very affected by the loss of these two points. We should not allow ourselves to be manipulated like that -- I give you a star, I take one away,'' Bocuse said. ``These critics are like eunuchs: They know what to do but they can't do it.''
Unfortunately, the French papers do not seem to have that quote in French.

Wait! we got them on the run now. LeMonde has a special section on la francophobie amèricain (halfway down this page), and it features a prominent photo of a DuBoeuf Beaujolais, which even the French call a vin du merde.
