UK riots: Excellent first-hand account
What I'm not getting is "London in flames." It seems a very Anglo sort of riot; perhaps they even qeueud! Although other nights and locations may have differed. What I did notice in the coverage was the same burning building over and over, and it wasn't a very large building, either; not as large as the Tuileries, or the Winter Palace. So why did our famously free press keep printing that same photo over and over? Because they want copycats, that's why.
