As a New Yorker, and someone who loves London, my heart goes out to Londoners this morning as they cope with the aftermath of the bombings. Ghastly things - both terrorist and otherwise - happen all over the globe every day. But bombings of public transportation are disquieting, to the say the least, to those of us who live in big cities.
I hope the UK's involvement in Iraq wasn't a preciptating factor. I also hope Blair doesn't use the attacks as an excuse for retaliatory bombing of innocent people, the way Bush would.
