Norris, we're chipping in for French lessons for Mark. Mike reportedly has already acquired a taste for escargot. Rude lessons? Covered! Hey, we've got the best. My man in Petaluma, Bruce Gordon has volunteered his tutorial services.

BTW, the French will not take on the Richard Sachs frame. Amir in Israel has that covered.

I think it is cool that someone is taking a shot at this. Not sure what Kone has in line for a marketing program but I hope Lyli Herse shows up next year at Cirque wearing a Bruce Gordon button.
