London Crying

London calling to the zombies of death/quit holding out and draw another breath - the Clash

I don't have anything to add to the torrent of words released today, so will link to the two posts that put me in tears
Perhaps now is therefore not the most inappropriate moment to do something which under ordinary circumstances would be decidedly un-English; viz, to express my real affection for the country in which I have chosen to live. It has become, in a way I never expected it to, home. Oxblog's Patrick


And that's because we're better than you. Everyone is better than you. Our city works. We rather like it. And we're going to go about our lives. We're going to take care of the lives you ruined. And then we're going to work. And we're going down the pub.

So you can pack up your bombs, put them in your arseholes, and get the fuck out of our city. - London Review

and the unfilled small wish that I shared

A WISH....If I could have one small wish for today, it would be for the blogosphere on both left and right to refrain from political point scoring over the London attacks. Just for a day. Isn't tomorrow soon enough to return to our usual arguments? Kevin Drum

thanks for posting this. i really do feel for those touched by the tragedy.
