Getting French Money
Bruce Birkett, my first physics professor at Cal, just sent me a very amusing clothing label
attached to an American product sold in France. Patriotic companies engage in precise marketing for the sake of building up those foreign currency reserves, of course. This brought back happy memories because Bruce would always tell us that physics was like a language one had to practice thinking in all the time, and look for everywhere, just like he used to count things in French and look for French labels to read when he was learning French. I guess he hasn't stopped!
