There is no excuse for this kind of attack on innocent people going about their daily business. None.

My heart is breaking for Londoners and for everyone in and around the UK today. It might not mean much, but I'm feeling very much like I did on 9/11, and I just hope our British post-ers here know that we're pulling for them and hoping for the best.

I'm repeating Dream Theatre's In The Name Of God at the moment.

Listen when the prophet speaks to you
Killing in the name of God
Passion, twisting faith into violence
In the name of God

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Yes, it does feel like that terrible day in the fall of 2001. There is one difference though. In 2001, the swedish TV had news about it nonstop for hours and hours, now it has news every half hour, and in between there is some sort of jazzmusic on and information about coming programmes of the day. I'm not kidding.

Have we really become that blazé? That a thing like this is not material for nonstop coverage?

We don't see the carnage; you didn't see the dead children in Beslan or the body pieces scattered over the train stations in Madrid. The self-censorship of the media I suppose, it makes things seem cleaner than they actually are.

I wonder if the producer of 'the power of nightmares' thinks this is all make-believe.

Blanket coverage in Australia, and evidently the US as well (cable TV has it's advantages).

It just bewilder's me to see the contrast between yesterday when London was given the 2012 Olympics and people were smiling, partying and feeling elated. Today however...

My God. I feel as devastated as I was in 2001. Londoner's were planning a celebration for the Olympics soon, but its been scrapped due to todays tragic events. Australia has suffered with the Bali bombings and the devastaton is still fresh on our minds. My heart goes to all of you.

My friend's friends are in London but she says they're alright, and I'm quite happy to see many of our regular UK posters online as well.

Thoughts & prayers go out to everyone, of course.
