Just when you thought all was lost, I came upon the following tidbit from Agence France Press, as posted on Yahoo!

"French fries are back on the menu of cafeterias that cater to US lawmakers on Capital Hill, more than three years after they were replaced by 'freedom fries' in anger over France's refusal to join the US-led war in Iraq.

"Of the five food outlets that had heeded calls by House Republicans to inject patriotism into their menus in March 2003, the last two that still used 'freedom fries' reverted back to the original name in the last two weeks.

"A spokesman for Representative Vernon Ehlers, a Republican who chairs the House Administration Committee, which oversees the cafeterias, declined to comment on the change when questioned by AFP."

Ladies and gentlemen, we can now rest peacefully at night.  Yeah sure

 relieved
