Comments: Terror in London

Perhaps I have become an incredible cynic, but I simply cannot get too worked up over <50 deaths these days, especially considering this whole thing happened at the same time as a summit to combat hunger and poverty in Africa. MILLIONS of people die ALL THE TIME in Africa, and the news doesn't say a damn thing about that.

I know, I know, al quaeda is the enemy and they are trying to destroy our way of life and this attack is reflective of the larger problem we face -- being unable to feel safe in our modern world, and facing a people who will not accept freedom and democracy and whatnot.

I feel for the souls that were lost. But for some reason I have been totally unable to get really worked up over this.

It will probably be closer to 100. Its a bloody miracle that more people did not die considering they hit the tube. I have to tell you live-blogging an event such as this is bloody hard work. It was rewarding that so many people left comments and came to the site however. Thanks for the link Ben.
