How do you say "herpes-riddled adulterer" in French? Alors! We missed an exciting French-Texan cultural exchange
last week:
Movers and shakers in the hundreds turned out at Blaffer Gallery on the University of Houston campus Thursday night for the launch of the cultural week "Lyon via Houston."

The Texan-French Alliance for the Arts kicked off the cultural exchange with the opening reception at the gallery featuring the work of French photographer Alain Bublex.

Lynn Wyatt, Susie Criner and Maria and Neil Bush were among those admiring the photography and celebrating the upcoming week of cultural events with its French accent.
Interestingly, the reception kicked off with this fascinating lecture:
7 PM - 9 PM Opening Reception, Alain Bublex, Plug-In City: Houston,
Blaffer Gallery, the Art Museum of the University of Houston
French Philosopher Bruce Bégout will lecture at 6:00PM

Bruce Bégout is a French writer and philosopher as well as philosophy lecturer at the University of Picardy. In his lecture, Bruce Bégout will discuss the role of the motel as archetypal architecture of American suburbia.
Given those in attendance, perhaps Bégout should have also discussed the invaluable role of the motel in branding the moral-values presidential brother as archetypal double-dealing, prostitute-patronizing, adulterous fuck-up while riddled with venereal disease.
