How soon they forget...

Quote from story on the latest London bombings: "Police in London have arrested two men in connection with four attacks on three subway trains and a double-decker bus on Thursday, a scene hauntingly similar to deadly explosions set off by four suicide bombers exactly two weeks before. It was an inescapable message that life in London now means living with the threat of terror."

Well, duh, guys! It's been there for a LONG TIME. Remember the IRA? Yeah, those guys.

"I've been blown up by better bastards than you." --approximate quote from previous bombing.

The Landslide has Started...

Too late for the pebbles to vote.

The latest news on Yahoo gives me uncomfortable flashes of something else. I have up this screen up that says "Police to Check Bags on NYC Subways" and a picture of a big, stern-looking guy in desert camo holding his weapon with what looks like a train to one side. Underneath, we have "Slideshow: Homeland Security." And a video link for "NYC Commuters Get Tips for Spotting Terrorists."

I am waiting for the Nightwatch armbands to show up...
