No doubt you've heard about the congressional push to change the name of French fries and French toast to Freedom fries and Freedom toast. So we pondered how this might affect Franco-American nomenclature in the Mid-South. La Baguette might become the Infinite Liberty Bread Company. The rib shack known as the Rendezvous could change its name to the Willing Coalition, and La Petite Academy could become the Tiny Patriot Training Center. The Peabody's swank eatery, Chez Philippe, might become Phil's Place, while chef Jose Gutierrez becomes simply "Jo-Bob." Of course, La Nails on Riverdale would become La Casa de Nails.
