Bonfires (“Feux de joie.”)

American society has obvious lasting problems plus new problems coming in 2013 (See my editorial coming soon on this topic.) Other national societies also have lasting problems. In France, there is a massive deployment of police for New Year’s Eve . The principal police mission on that night  is to limit the number of privately owned cars deliberately burned in the street. The  arson benchmark for the whole year is 40,000. I couldn’t find any figure for that single night. It’s a government secret.

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.
