1848 REVISITED?

AP reports that "youths" celebrated the one year anniversary of last autumn's Banlieu Riots in Paris by . . .

. . . forcing passengers off three buses and setting them on fire! It just wouldn't be autumn in Paris without a little rioting. I wonder if they were in any way inspired by the Hungarian "anti-government" protestors' bold seizure of a Soviet tank?

The sheer chutzpah of the tank move really can't be topped, but marking the anniversary of a week of burning buses by . . . burning more buses has some panache. Those crazy "youths," what'll they do next?
