Unhappy london calling!

well, i suppose it had to happen one day.
i wonder why they didn't do it a day earlier
to mess up the olympic bid.
let's hope there aren't too many casualties
although it sounds bad:

london bombs

Mind the gap.....

4 explosions..3 on the tube, 1 bus. "Terrible casulties" (2 deaths are sure, 160 injuries so far)



My heart hurts

I just heard about this from a co-worker. Absolutely horrible.

Stay safe, friends. Stay safe.

i'm sorry egg..

i heard most of the city's telephone lines are down, i'm not sure if the mobile network is up again.. maybe they're all out there watching tv in the pub.. my uncle said a lot of people were gathering at the pubs!

maybe you can try and email them.. or maybe ring their workplace?

I wonder if this would have happened if Bush hadn't been re-elected.

I hope your friends check in soon, chuckie. Dark times.

When it happens to London, it happens to everyone here in the U.S. as well. It's horrifying and sad. My prayers are with you today, London.

Has anyone heard from Zero? I think he's a Londoner as well...
