Det är en ganska skarp kontrast mellan gårdagens DN-löpsedel “London, stad i skräck” och Dan Hills på bloggen cityofsound redogörelse för sin bild av staden:

Yesterday’s bungling bombers have placed a second attack on London in two weeks into a space which seems almost farcical. This slightly pathetic attempt has shaken people up for sure – but I half suspect that, at the moment, Al-Qaeda or equivalent could achieve same by running round popping inflated paper bags behind people’s backs. Or a ‘slamming shut heavy books’ attack squad perhaps. Equally though, London continues to just get on with stuff, and I wonder how this squares with The Independent’s ridiculous ‘City of fear’ headlines this morning.
– “Today’s bulletin from the city of fear,” Dan Hill, cityofsound.

The above was posted to my personal weblog on July 23, 2005. My name is Peter Lindberg and I am a thirtysomething software developer and dad living in Stockholm, Sweden. Here, you’ll find posts in English and Swedish about whatever happens to interest me for the moment.
