sudz, edgeware is about tennish minutes from kings cross via underground and liverpool st station is 15-20 from kings cross. the blasts are basically right around the edges of the very central heart of london. My best girlfriend got off the tube this morning two stops past edgeware road- goes through it every day- just before the blasts went off. I thank god for small miracles, and I know its selfish.

I just saw that at kings cross 21 are dead; does anyone know what the total is?
Totally agree with ya'll about not changing your life, it sounds cliché but if you don’t keep on doing what you always do then the terrorists win. It just really sucks that this is a common thing on the news, four strategic attacks by a highly organized group set out to disrupt the world and peace!

Hope eveyones families and friends are ok.
I'm going to be there in 6 days. Sounds as if the lines will be back running again tomorrow though. I for one am not scared to go there. I doubt they will attack so soon after their first. they seem to sit and wait to see what else they might need to get around untill their next attack.

Yet another tragedy.
My prayers to all the victims & their family.

I hope all Punkers are safe.
