French auto burnings back to normal

So, last night the number of cars burned in France was down to about 208, plus a couple of schools ... although the rioters, in a flash of ingenuity, rammed a car into a school, then set it on fire. Perhaps they were running a little low on petrol.

And, Parisian officials are breathing a sigh of relief, since conditions seem to be returning to normal --- normal being only 100 cars torched on any given night when there's not riots going on...

Let's look at the bright side. Car sales must be up, n'est ce pas? What a boost for the economy!
