ABC's Primetime Live is "The Fear Hour"
According to them we are all going to die. Of course, nothing about the root causes of the attack. That just would be too much for the MSM to report.

They are subtly ranting at the Brits for going on about their lives. I guess they were supposed to all go in a fetal positon and suck their thumbs for the rest of the week :eyes:

2. London did the Blitz.
Al qaida is nothing but parvenu peanuts to them.

Think the IRA is feeling marginalized?

3. I was just talking to my mom about this.
My boyfriend, who is in London, was surprisingly unfettered when he called me (once cell phone service was back up, that is). Granted, he was about as close to the bombings as Midtown Manhattan is to Wall Street, and it's not like these were anything close to the Sept. 11 attacks. But still -- the British have been handling this so much better than the American press will let you believe.

And, yes, those poor little IRA bank robbers are probably drinking away their sorrows at Finnegan's Pub right now. "Maybe we should've been meaner! Then the world would've listened!"

By the way, I'm allowed to say that because my family is a bunch of mean old (but peaceful!) Irish patriots.
