I'm ready to move back to France

I watched SiCKO online tonight, and I am ready to move back to France. There's a part in the middle of the movie where Michael Moore has a hard time understanding why the media hates the French so much. They have better health care (along with the rest of the planet), more vacation time, and a shorter work week. But it's more than that. It's just a better quality of life. And people actually care about other people -- not just their family and friends. It's hard to explain. Most Americans wouldn't understand.

Yeah, you listen to the media and we hate the French, and the French hate us. In fact, a select, vocal few do the hating, the rest of us (at least those smart enough not to listen to the media) get along fine.
