As I read the newspaper accounts and watch the news from a burning Paris I remember our summer trip to Italy. There, in Murano where we bought our stem wear (wine glasses) the Italian man explained to me that Europians don't understand Americans and how violent they are. Citing the looting in New Orleans at the time he said things like that would never happen in Europe.
Maybe France doesn't count. Of course there were riots in Northern Ireland while we were there as well.
He was a nice man, married to a girl from Brooklyn. The glasses are beautiful. If you come and visit you can drink out of them.
