Meanwhile, across the pond...

'Not posting any of that "Today we're all Londoners" crap. No. We're not. We're not pacing fruitlessly in front of the television, waiting for updates. We're not trying to reach loved ones on a shut-down cell phone system, not hearing sirens, not catching sight of something awful because we rounded the wrong corner.

'London's been bombed flat during the Blitz, suffered riots, more bombings during the Troubles, and now this. And all the while, as Warren [Ellis] points out, without losing their bottle. I wouldn't presume to claim the stones to be a Londoner.'

-- John Rogers
