Live on the BBC

Your's truly was on the BBC's World Service station on a great show called "World Have Your Say" this afternoon. Myself and a few other callers expressed their thoughts on the riots in France and whether they are a result of economic troubles, like France's unemployment rate, or racial discrimination and conflict. I don't think I did the show justice with my somewhat meandering commentary, but it is a great show, and the other callers were really interesting. Give me a listen at this link. It's about half an hour into the program.

Juan Cole has commentary today on the debate over the French riots as presented in US media.

Also, in my comment on the story above, I forgot to mention Proposition 2 passing in Texas yesterday.
