Another Damned Medievalist delivers her spiel.
I couldn't agree more. When I was in London doing research I lived a few blocks from the Edgeware Road tube stop and passed through the station almost daily for five months. And of course the Russell Square station was near the I.H.R., so I used it too. Oddly, I feel a closer personal connection to those places than to the World Trade Center--I've spent a total of 3 days in NYC and had never seen the building. My heart goes out to the injured and the families of the slain.
I do, too. Although having heard stories about the Blitz from my MIL, and having been there on numerous occasions and seen how Londoners have never really given up watchfulness after the IRA bombings, I was both more immediately worried for people and less worried for the city. Definitely less worried that Blair will go off half-cocked.
