Bomb Defused in London
As I write, London police are using a robot to investigate a parked car near Buckingham Palace. The operation comes hours after a car was discovered packed with explosives and ready to detonate outside a nightclub in Picadilly Circus.
The proper response of Americans to these events? Book a vacation in London immediately and make sure to visit Picadilly Circus.
Whoever planned this operation at the height of the tourist season is trying to hurt the UK economy.
Britain is perfectly safe, in fact the murder rate there, including political violence, is one-fourth that of the US. A ticket to the UK can be found inexpensively and there are reasonable places to stay, and as urban historians have pointed out, London is a giant toy that is endless fun to play with.
