It might be tacky to start reciting “London bridges falling down,”but that’s what first comes to mind. 

It’s way too early to speculate that this could be an act of terrorism.  We don’t have firm numbers of dead.  Apparently, something did cause the train to derail.  Mass transit has been a favored means of attack in Continental Europe.  Well, also the tube (subway) in London.

It could make for an interesting time.

Also, I’ve seen something where Osama Bin Laden is trying to capture/kill Prince Harry (1st Luitenant Wales).  

I hope that this is just a mistake, but I fear that it could be something else.
