Thanks to those who emailed me about the London explosions. It's been frightening watching the carnage on TV, but fairly amazing to see how quickly the transport system was up and running again. Thankfully my nearest and dearest were nowhere near the capital on the day, but we'll all need to be extra vigilant from now on. Vigilant, yes -- cowed, no. Trying to fathom the mind of a terrorist is a pretty fruitless task, so we simply endeavour to continue with our lives.
Anyone who was affected, indirectly or directly -- my thoughts go out to you. There's little comfort we can offer to those maimed or bereaved, other than to make it known that our sympathies are with them, and that despite the threats we will not be terrorized.
