Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)
Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.
This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

I'd nominate Catherine Deneuve, but that's just me.
De Gaulle or Piaf, but no Napoleon: poll for French greatest underwayPossumblog readers are asked to refrain from jocular references to such things as "the world's shortest giant." It's interesting, too, that there's no Lafayette--arguably the most popular Frenchman in the US, if you go by the number of towns named for him.
Anyway, of the list given, I have to laugh that de Gaulle is listed and not Charlemagne or Joan of Arc. Of the rest, I think Curie and Pasteur should be tied for first, then maybe Hugo, then Cousteau.
