...today we mourn yet more victims of a terrorist atrocity. One I was totally unaware of, as I went to bed early and didn't check my phone until I got up at 5:00 and idly flicked on FaceBook, and wondered why it was asking if I wanted to let friends know I was safe, as I was 'near the Attack'.
'Stupid software!', I thought 'I'm nowhere near Manchester, and you're over a week late!' Then I had a horrible thought, and checked Twitter. And found out.
How many more? There are calls for the General Election to be suspended, calls from the usual suspects, of course. The ones who will also tell you this is 'nothing to do with Islam', as the body count mounts and SAS helicopters buzz over London and streets are closed and we are urged to 'remain calm' as the authorities try to work out what's happened.
I think we all know by now what's happened. But what do we do about it? That's the real question, isn't it?
