The plural of Vichy is Vichys, not Vichy’s.

Comments not by F. Cook but by a relative of hers:

France is a typical example of a country where individual responsibility has been replaced by government entitlements.  People now expect their government to be all things to all people and to take care of them from the cradel to the grave.  For those who haven’t noticed, this is the same direction America is heading.  It is not a recent process and has gradually been going on for the past fifty plus years.  It is only under Socialist in Chief, Barack Obama that the speed of the runnaway train has picked up.  Folks, just like France, we stand on the brink of bankruptcy as a nation and when the country goes over the cliff, it will be too late to fix the problem.  In the election of November, you have a choice to make.  You can vote for candidates to elective office who are conservative, believe in smaller, less costly government and who will bring about a balanced Federal Budget.  Or, you can vote for the big spenders, continue business as usual and wait for the ship to fall off the edge of the cliff.  As for me, I say fire them all and let’s get this country back on track.
