by Dave Sedaris. Fucking clever book. So he's on a train or subway in France and there are these paranoid-as-hell tourists from America who stupidly assume that everyone around them is French and therefore cannot understand a word of English. So these two kids are grabbing onto this pole for dear life when my man Dave, who is from America, grabs on to the same pole for lack of levity or some shit like that. The male tourist comments on how bad my man smells, then starts going on about how French people are a buncha lousy sheisters and are always looking to steal unassuming foreigners' pocketbooks. Well, my man said nothing. He just let them talk. He could've made the guy feel like a total fool, but didn't. That, I believe, is what they call "class." And Brian, sir, that is certainly what you have. If it wasn't obvious before, it certainly is now.
