I just posted something smiliar on Kos.
I found two items this morning in the local rag, LA DEPECHE, that made me feel real good about France.
One was that a survey showed that 94% of 18-30 years-old want to vote in the Presidential, 35% identifying themselves on the Left and 35% in the Center.
94% I thought. Boy, what a difference.
The other item was about a TV guy (Pascal Sevran - no idea who he is) being widely shunned and criticized because he wrote that Africans had too many children and should be sterilized, and he might even lose his job.
Again, I contrasted this with our TV personalities like Malkin and Coulter and Pat Roberson who spew their venom unhindered, and I thought, that's what it feels like to be in a "normal" country.
I remember "normal" In America; I just don't know what happened.
