Thanks for the amusing anecdote. Had not seen that before. Miles Standish was my (I forget how many greats) grandfather.
No kidding! Wow. Buchwald's column used to appear every Thanksgiving, and I remember laughing many times about the whole thing, but Kilometres Deboutish was always the best.
I was thinking that I had never seen this either, until I got to the end where Priscilla says "Chacun a son gout", and I had a sudden flash of recognition, because this is where I learned that phrase.
