At least things are going right somewhere in the world: Jean-Marie Le Pen received only about 10% of the vote in the first round of the French presidential election, placing a distant fourth and leaving him on the outside of the runoff to take place in about two weeks.

The turnout rate for the election, by the way, was near 85%. Democracy can involve participation.
