Americans have had a long love affair with France, though some of us are never quite sure if our love is returned. Countless American tourists have had their hearts handed to them on a platter by haughty Parisians or, closer to home, by waiters at fancy French restaurants around town. Do the French really abhor us that much, as popular culture suggests? Panelists go tete-a-tete to find out whether the love between Americans and le Francois is really a one-sided affair.
