    Napoleon's tomb is very impressive, but I found Marshal Foch's tomb particularly moving:

    His coffin is held aloft by the statues of French infantrymen as if he were being carried on their shoulders.

    If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
