Re: London


London attacks: May I once again caution patience before drawing conclusions. Original reports are invariably misleading. Nietzsche once remarked that the mark of a cultured person is the length of time between stimulus and response. It requires courage NOT to leap to draw conclusions, but we will all–above all our readers–be better off if we take our time, wait for the verified information, etc.

There is no medal for being wrong first.
