Riddle: What’s the difference between Lincoln, Nebraska and Paris, France?

1 In Paris, you're can skate in the streets!
2 If you see police on rollerskates in Lincoln, you're dreaming!
3 The Louvre is in Paris, and the whole block north of it is an asphalt plaza open to skating every night of the summer.
4 In Paris every Friday night at 10, a river of skaters floods through a 20-25K course, leaving the occasional misplaced motorist cowering by the curb.
