I did a post on this a few days back. Actually, compared to the population of France, it does not seem that French police are wounded at a faster rate than American police. It is just that their criminals come from a somewhat different demographic.


Me again. I somehow stumbled upon your blog, and the only thing that's kept me here is the utter amount of bullshit that needs to be set straight.
I live in Paris, and the Banlieue is indeed a fairly violent place, police officers can't travel in small groups, and in the 'cités' it is increasingly difficult to have the police intervene.
But this has NOTHING to do with radical islamism.
Fact is, many young immigrants in the cités are from north africa, and come from a muslim family, but to call them radical islamists is just completely wrong.
I don't know if you have bad sources or if you just wildly misinterpert everything you read, but this blog is a perfect example of all the bad things the internet has given us : blogs where a person who knows NOTHING about a given topic blabbers on and on with misinformation and personal biases.
Racial and religious tensions in and around Paris are a very serious, delicate, and complex problem. Next time just post a picture of a cute doggy.

mean I just read through the entire article of yours and it was quite good but since I'm more of a visual learner,I found that to be more helpful.

Seen at low tide

  • American White Pelican
    Saw 30 in one flock on a weptember evening while fishing
  • Hummingbird
    Finally, my first hummingbirds. Saw them on a fire bush in Crystal Beach, FL. My rental's neighbor's yard is all xeriscaped, which is ugly to me but just fine with the little hummers. At first, I thought they were the biggest hornets I'd ever seen.
  • Flamingo!
    One of these dudes flew right over my house. I couldn't believe it. And please don't tell me it was a roseated spoonbill because it was a frickin' flamingo, dude! Huge and pink and right there above me. I was like so freaking out, you know?
  • Falcon!
    Don't see these guys too often. Wish we did. Bet the morning doves don't.
  • Black Skimmer
    These beauties are getting scarce, but one flew by yesterday at low tide on the hunt for minnows.
  • Dead sea turtle
    cool, but smelly
  • Reddish Egret
    These have been hanging out around the pool quite a bit lately. Must be a new group of adolesent birds -- the youngsters like to hunt where the water is clear, and it takes them a day to figure out there are not now and never will be fish in the swimming pool no matter how clear the water.
  • Sand Piper
  • Brown Pelican
    I saw a flock of about 200 of these at Disappearing Island yesterday, just south of Anclote Island on the west coast of FL. Good to see such a large flock.
  • Wood Pecker
    They've developed a sudden interest in the orange tree, which just went into bloom.
