LONDON'S MAYOR STILL DOESN'T GET IT

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.
