Deep Fried Truffles

French aerospace giant Airbus has announced it will build a $600 million production plant in Mobile, AL. The plant will manufacture jets for the US military.

It seems odd to me that Defense Secretary Rumsfeld, the outspoken proponent of a smaller and more nimble military that relies on technology, would order military jets from a company based in Old Europe.

And the thought of a French-based company in L.A. (that's Lower Alabama) is sort of funny. What's next? Deep Fried Truffles?
