NOW with the curfews??

from CNN:

Following 11 days of violence that have rocked France, Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin said Monday that the government will deploy more police and will take the unprecedented step of allowing mayors to declare curfews in French cities.
A, what's so unprecedented about curfews? B, what the hell took you so long?

If I was a conspiratorially minded kind of girl, which lord knows I'm not, I'd suspect that Villepin was in cahoots with the Bush Family Evil Empire and International Crime Syndicate and under orders to make the Shrub look good by screwing up the French response to the riots worse than Bush screwed up with Katrina.

You do not understand. Curfews are what you impose on people of marginal civilization who do not fully appreciate the correctness of all that is French. And certainly, it is difficult for the leader of France to admit that some of the French people mibht be "people of marginal civilization" and hence the difficulties he has had in imposing curfews.

By the way, recall how the mayor of New Orleans and governor of Louisiana were so effective in establishing and maintaining law and order and civility when FEMA let that area down. They certainly stepped into the breach in a laudatory way - - NOT!
