The world grew a little smaller today.

from the BBC

A series of bomb attacks on London's transport network has killed more than 30 people and injured about 350 others. There were three explosions on the Underground - which police said left 33 dead - and one on a double-decker bus in which an unknown number died.

For me, it used to be that wars happened on television. B&W film of the world wars, colorized Korean and vibrant Vietnam. The Gulf War went straight to video and the latest have all been streaming the internet. But each time, it was on a screen of someplace I've never been.

This morning, a place where I have been, a tube I took several times was bombed in London between Kings Cross and Russel Square.

Today, for me, the world just got a lot smaller.
