Blair’s Burden (updated)

London. Shit.

Shit. Shit. Shit.

My first thought was: “I wonder if the attacks were contingent upon London being chosen for the Olympics.”

I went there before 9/11 and was shocked to see police with machine guns. I’d never seen such a thing. Then we flew out of Paris and were evacuated from Orly due to a bomb scare. It was all so strange and frightening. Then it seeped into our country and our subconcious as well. Or I guess it flew in on a couple of planes.

Londoners have been dealing with terrorism for a very long time. Much longer than we have. But that doesn’t make the terrorism any less terrifying. I feel so awful for their city.

*Update: a bit of good news as counterbalance – emergency contraception has been approved for over-the-counter use by a veto-proof margin in Massachusetts. There is NOTHING our Mormon Governor, Mitt Romney, can do about it. Just a tiny ray of sunshine….*
