Why does baguette s*ck in this country...

Sorry - random rant but it ceases to amaze me. Almost anywhere you go in Europe, the baguette it amazing. Crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy in the middle. I can eat it plain all day long, and with butter or spread, it's divine. I have never found one supermarket here that does it right. And almost every bakery is below average or terrible. I can count on one hand, the number of times I've had good baguette in this continent (and almost all are in Montreal). Amandine in West LA is decent but everywhere else I've been is sub par. Places like Panera and Corner Bakery are HORRIBLE. I'm too damn busy to bake it other than holidays. Why is it that no one here appreciates good bread??? Otherwise, why is it soooooo hard to find...

Panera Bread,
Corner Bakery Cafe
