Apologists among us

normblog: Apologists among us
Norman Geras has some serious things to say about the reaction of some to the London bombings. I share his view, and like him, was appalled at the sentiments expressed in the article in today's Guardian by Dilpazier Aslam, which seems to suggest that the bombs can be excused as an expression of what he winningly calls "sassiness." He's a trainee, apparently. Lots more training to do, it seems.

Thanks Nigel. I note this character has now been sacked by the Grauniad.
