Every man Jack should raise a full bumper

Indeed, given that I am being punished with 4 hours of French lessons a day into the distant future / or at least for the next few weeks, it is only right and proper that today I raise a full bumper of cognac to the immortal memory of Alexis de Tocquevill, 200 today.
Now if more Frenchmen were like him, and maybe Mr Sarkozy might just be getting there, well hundreds of years of prejudice might just have to be questioned.
