Thoughts and prayers to the dead and wounded in London (and their friends, families, and fellow countrymen) after this morning’s series of explosions on the Underground and bus network. The blasts, which are almost certainly the work of organized terrorism, brought London’s transport grid to a standstill during rush hour and prompted Tony Blair’s early return from the start of the G8 summit in Scotland.
To the law enforcement officials: Godspeed and happy hunting. May you swiftly catch the bastards responsible for this atrocity and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. And may you do so in a fashion that can show my own deranged government that you don’t need to set aside the rights of your own citizens, nor act in a reprehensible fashion, to catch and convict the bad guys.
