When the heat is on – run

Jewels in the Jungle adds his voice to the running commentary on the Paris riots in the blogosphere and wonders what would happen if the riots spread to Germany and possibly the rest of Europe – meanwhile he has his passport, airline ticket, clothes packed and car keys on the ready – lucky fellow to be able to up and run when the HEAT starts.

  • Unfortunately my flight out of town has been cancelled. I guess I’ll just have to stay and watch the French riots on TV like everybody else here in Germany. Noch ein Bier, bitte. Danke.
