The Times and Bombs

Look at this part of the Times Online

Why, some 8 months after the event, are the London bombings given such a high profile link in their sidebar? I cannot believe that the link has been overlooked for this length of time. Clicking through to the page there is a whole swathe of information collected and seemingly presented as some sort of “First the bombs now all this” when maybe the links are weaker, possibly even not there at all. It’s like some sort of “We shall never forget” or a page that they keep “ready for the next time”. I know it was significant but that much? Makes me wonder what sort of internet coverage would have been given for the IRA during their mainland campaigns, or the Lockerbie disaster or other events that had a significant impact – or an impact judged as worthy by the press.

One thought on “The Times and Bombs

  1. I was reading about someone who was ready to write the Idiots guide to WordPress and realized that what would make me happy is to have you write such a book.

    I read print (300dpi or higher) at about 1kwpm, screen resolutions &70dpi or so) at about 200wpm or less. I really prefer print for many things, especially with my aging eyes.

    I’m getting ready to start a wordpress blog at and having not had wordpress install right the first time (turns out there was a database flaw — not a wordpress problem) I found it easier to change servers …

    Now I’m getting ready to do it again, but would really prefer a book I could read than pages I could browse.

    Just my two bits, especially seeing what I saw on Amazon.
