August 09, 2011
I've been following the news quite heavily since the weekend and obsessively since last night as riots break out across England. I have many friends in London and Birmingham and am concerned for their safety. I'm a shamelessly political individual and have strong views on the way our country is run, but regardless of blame (and I'm very much inclined to blame certain authorities and social institutions for this mess as well as the morons running around setting fires to people's home) the whole sitution is just plain disturbing.
