I’ve been following the riots in Paris, though somewhat loosely due to time constraints. It’s terrible to see the violence that is happening, and worse that the government has seemed thus far unable to constrain it. MSNBC reports tonight:

The tough new measures came as France’s worst civil unrest in decades entered a 12th night, with rioters in the southern city of Toulouse setting fire to a bus after sundown and pelting police with gasoline bombs and rocks.
