December 29th, 2010 · 4 Comments

Mother Nature threw a wrench in travel plans for those of us who live up and down the Eastern seaboard this past weekend, stranding people in airports, halting public transportation, and leaving anywhere from 12-24 inches of snow in its wake.

It basically confirms my belief that Americans could take a cue from the French when it comes to the finer things in life — coffee, good bread, and film. And we wonder why Americans are so fat. Based on the food and beverage comparisons alone, Paris vs New York […]
