This Just In

Reuters via Opinion Journal.

"Three former waiters at New York's posh 21 Club, where a hamburger costs $30, have filed a $5 million discrimination lawsuit saying they were fired for being French," Reuters reports.

"In a civil suit made public on Monday at Manhattan Supreme Court, the three men, Rene Bordet, 68, Jean Claude Lesbre, 63 and Yves Thepault, 68, said the restaurant's management falsely accused them of drinking wine on the job and 'created and fostered an environment rife with anti-French sentiment.' "

It's going to be tough to prove that anti-French sentiment was the fostered by "the management" rather than "300 million Americans"...
