6/11/08 Bad News

I don't usually like to comment on violence and disasters in the news: there's way too much of it. I think the media's over-coverage of bad things happening makes people more afraid of each other than they have need to be. Anyway, there's been quite a bit of talk about the attack in Tokyo that occurred on Sunday. It seems particularly relevant to me because it happened in Akihabara, the nerd wonderland that we have visited a couple of times. I think the fact that everyone is shocked by it underlines the fact that things like this don't happen very often.

Anyway... I promise to have something more upbeat to talk about shortly!
