You're right, of course. On the one hand this is all TOTALLY TERRIFYING and makes one feel that the world is coming to an end--but on the other hand, at least we're not in the NAPOLEONIC WARS, you know what I'm saying? It's also better than letting the government/media get us all worked up over 9/11 again. Given the emotional climate today, focusing on any other topic is an act of victory.

Re: running over McGill students: Yeah, one of the signs of autumn for me is the suddenly increased treacherousness of the McGill bike shortcut from Sherbrooke to Milton. You can't just go flying through campus anymore, unless you have really knobby tires.
