Paris Still On Fire

It seems to have faded from everyone’s mind, but the French are still rioting. Well, they are at least still lighting cars on fire which counts in my book.

As part of renewed government efforts to combat the inequalities laid bare by France's worst riots in four decades,

President Jacques Chirac is to meet Tuesday with business and labor leaders and national television executives to discuss hiring young people from poor neighborhoods and airing more programs that reflect France's racial diversity.

It looks like the solution is to tell everyone that France is diverse and to ask employers nicely to hire the rioters regardless of whether or not they are qualified to hold the job. I don’t know about you, I’m skeptical of how that is going to work out.
