If this is success...

God save the French from failure, is all I can say.

Overnight, the number of car-torchings "— a barometer of the unrest " dropped sharply, with youths setting fire to 284 vehicles, compared to 374 the previous night, police said Monday.

I suppose it is an improvement over 1,200 per night, but the fact that any cars are burned indicates a continuing problem, at least as I would see it.

Perhaps the French will take it seriously when they graduate to burning cars in nicer neighborhoods.
