Today I'm An Indian

It was widely reoprted yesterday that bombers attacked a series of sites and trains in Bombay along a rail line that carries commuters from downtown to their homes in the 'burbs. Knowing a little about India from watching the telly the past few decades, it's quite likely that many if not all of the folks on board the trains and on the platforms were working stiffs trying to make a life for themselves and their families.

As usual, the bombers did not have the cojones of real pistoleros, instead making war against blameless civilians from cover as they do. We here in the states have a special relationship with the people who were damaged here, as we took the first hard hits in a war we don't even know how to define or identify the perpetrators.

So today, I'm an Indian.
