Sad as hell

Just a word to remember those who died in the London attacks, the injured, the bereaved, and those who will be affected by this for the rest of their lives in ways they can't even imagine. Two other immediate thoughts. One, I've had this odd mixture of deep sadness and loud FUCK YOU anger all day. Can't watch the news, but if there's a Bollocks to the Terrorists march in London I'll be there. Two, Ken Livingstone, the Mayor of London, proved yet again what a hero to the city he is. Speaking from Singapore, where he had just been celebrating as part of the successful Olympic bid, Livingstone spoke with the same raw mixture of anger and grief that many of us are feeling. Watch him over the next few days.
