An Observation

London, Thoughts and Terror
Many Londoners, including me, find the fact that there are plain-clothed armed police on the tube scarier than the fact that there are suicide bombers on the tube.

There is a nervous optimism that the police had a good reason to shoot a man five times, after they had restrained him. They must have had a good reason, mustn't they?

Note to the Standard, and others: Two days of inconvenience does not a Blitz make. And stop calling it 7/7, please.
