I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they’ve always worked for me.

But it's not the 5th of November-

Ok, that was horrible, please forgive the history nerd with a dark sense of humor.

Thanks for posting the news.

Parliament attack in London

Awful for all involved :)
Yeah, my brother and his family live in London, and my mum flew in today to see them. As far as I can tell from themselves, twitter & the BBC, both incidents are over. I'll likely hear more later from my family in London.

Unless the nutter was wearing a Guy Fawkes mask...

The latest news is he used a car, and then dismounted and knifed a police officer before being shot by two more plain clothes LEOs. No information on the doer, but the fact that it's on the first anniversary of the Brussels bombing isn't encouraging.

My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims- and even the suspect.

Five are dead, and at least 40 others were injured, in an attack in London that authorities have declared a terrorist incident. A police officer and the man believed to be an attacker are among the dead.

It seems the authorities responded quickly at least.

An American national from Utah has died and his wife is seriously injured. Kurt Cochran and his wife Melissa were in London for their 25th wedding anniversary.

Unrelated: the word 'guy' entered the English lexicon after the Gunpowder Treason. It was originally a pejorative for an 'odd man' , the connotation being 'you gotta' watch that guy, he's a real nutter. He might even try to blow up Parliament.'

By the 19th century, the word had all but vanished in British English, and evolved in American English to mean just a man without the negative connotation.

Today, in America it can refer to men and women. And I believe that this is also true in the UK.
