When I open my mouth to speak, I am received with civility and the occasional â€™ Have a good one.â€™ I am not attacked or intimidated to the point of abject fear and loathing. Where have I been visiting for the past two and a half weeks? And where do I live? ”
And people wonder why I laugh when Europe is discussed as being the heart of tolerance.
