About the UK riots:
I'm so glad Nina Power writes.
At 8 pm EDSFT in the US, the BBC Worldnews has just reported rioting in Liverpool.
And just now, looting in Ealing, and Camden in uproar, huge fires in Croydon, a vacant police station in northwest Birmingham is afire. There is just too much happening to keep up with. The Guardian website has an interactive map detailing the sites of riots.
9 pm my time. Bristol, Liverpool and Birmingham are now reported as in crisis too. My gods what is happening. And a huge fire in Essex.
