This is London
I'm sure you've already heard about the attacks on subways and buses in London. The article linked says 2 killed, but the radio just said 4. And 120 injuries. Al Qaeda is claiming responsibility according to the Arab news, but that may or may not be true.
No comment. Several things are rolling through my head that would be highly inappropriate so soon after the attacks.
One of the local New York City muckymucks said that New Yorkers should not let this affect their behavior, and they should have no worries of hesitation about about taking mass transit. Which is totally assinine. Of COURSE people should avoid subways and buses on the same day as a coordinated series of attacks on subways and buses. Duh. What, are we now supposed to be morally obligated to take a frigging subway as an act of defiance? Spare me. Stay off the subways for a couple of days.
