Monday, July 11


London Mayor Ken Livingstone still doesn't get it, it would appear, even after the appalling tragedy that befell his city on July 7th.

He's quoted as saying:

This was not a terrorist attack against the mighty or the powerful, it is not aimed at presidents or prime ministers, it was aimed at ordinary working-class Londoners.

His point? I'd like to think he's not saying that had Parliament, the Crown, or a well-heeled neighborhood in London been the victim of terrorists' bombs he'd be less inclined towards condemnation of the event(s); but, then again, this is the same guy who called a well-known Islamic fanatic a "man of peace."

London has Livingstone; New York had Giuliani. America was fortunate; London has been short-changed.
