I don't quite agree with fellow Yargbian, Flenser, regarding "burnout" about the Paris riots. I have pretty much said all I can possibly say about them and have not recently found anything that brings any new information or ideas for discussion or consideration other than Jamie and Truepeers who are trying to bring the entire discussion to a higher intellectual level but, well, I'll need to reread his essay again (and again) before I can have any hope of following.
So I offer a couple brief diversions, and go in a decidedly non-intellectually elitist direction here, while I continue in mostly wait and see mode.
