    Default New York Attack

    I wonder if it'll soon be harder to hire a truck in the US than it is to acquire heavy weaponry?

    And how is it, that European police shoot the terrorists dead, yet the alledgedly gung-ho US police manage to arrest him?
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    5 rounds fired at you by British or any other European police force means you are dead.

    Shot in the stomach and survived apparently.

    US cops are much better shots when you're sat in a car or have your back to them.

    Not even on the front page of several papers and where it is it's pretty much a secondary story.

    How desensitized we've become to the normality and regularity of terror attacks...

    The Yanks are far more likely to hit each other, and call it "friendly fire", which is nice and ironic...

    What do you expect when the papers and Radio 4 are all obsessed to the point of madness with all this sexual groping bollox?

    Almost every single time I've turned on the radio in the car this week, Radio 4 have been droning on and on about it.

    What is it about MPs in particular that seems to make so many sexual malefactors and perves of one kind or another?

    I don't recall _ever_ working at a clientco or in permanent employment, over 40 years, where any such misconduct occurred or at least came to light, even at manic Christmas parties where everyone ended up as pissed as mattresses.

    I know we've had this discussion before, and one or two people came up with plausible reasons why it was misguided. But having suffered SMRF syndrome (Sexual Misconduct Reporting Fatigue) for a week now, I reckon more than ever that the Vikings had the best idea - Report sexual misconduct within 48 hours of its occurrence, or forever STFU about it and stop boring everyone to tears, and diverting attention from more important matters!
