Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sweeping (and insulting) generalisations are the spice of life... and meant to be taken with a grain of salt.

It's true that I don't get out much, but I honestly can't say that I have met with common-or-garden antisemitism except among bourgeois Lyonnais... twenty years ago I found it deeply shocking, these days I just make fun of it.

But I willingly replace "uniformly" with "often", OK? ;o)  

I have undoubtedly met non-anti-semitic bourgeois lyonnais, other than your good self... but how to be sure, unless one has actually discussed the subject with them?
