This post is intended to offend all Belgians equally

I am with Natalie Solent. I have a certain fondness for Belgium, too. She is quite right about the attraction of ending up in a cafe chair with croque monsieur and an amusingly shaped glass of the best beer in the world. The real question is whether Mark Steyn's Belgian half is Flemish or Walloon. If the former, then he is really Dutch and an heir to the culture that invented modern liberalism. If not, well, he is really sort of French, and that is kind of perplexing.
