my favorite This American Life segment (http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/291/reunited-and-it-feels-so-good?act=3). Should be required listening IMHO for anyone who has ever used the term ‘freedom fries’ non-ironically. Enjoy!

Contributing editor Sarah Vowell tells the story of General Lafayette’s triumphant reunion with America after becoming really, really unpopular in his native France.
