Good news from France

I was listening to Fox news last night and someone reported that the rioting was letting up; only 400 cars were burned last night, as opposed to former scores of, oh, I don't know, 1,600. Wow! That's progess. Those Renaults were lousy cars anyway. Maybe this was a protest aimed at the automotive industry by greens who favored public transportation. Wait, they burned buses too. And day care centers.
The popular 21st century sport is to make victims of bullies and oppressors out of the cops and firemen who have to deal with the mess. The government attempts to appease these thugs instead of shooting them or locking them up. Affirmative action and huge public projects are in the works. We feel their pain.
My fear is that they will take it out on Paris. Mind you, I wouldn't care if they set fire to Jacques Chirac and Dominique de Villepin. What I worry about is beautiful, historic Paris. It is the heritage of all of us in the West, not just the knuckleheaded French.
Wouldn't it be funny if Hitler got his wish and Paris burned to the ground?
