OBVIOUSLY, THIS SHOULD NOT BE YOUR SITE FOR BREAKING NEWS. But if you want to dive into the details of the despicable terror attacks o­n London, Instapundit is rounding up round-ups. Europhobia has been liveblogging from the UK. London's Guardian is all over it, as is the BBC. There's also analysis at the Counterterrorism blog.

YOU MAY BE RELIEVED TO LEARN THAT Duran Duran is unharmed. Whew.

UPDATE: Project Nothing also has very good blogging, including from-the-scene reactions.

UPDATE: The BBC has a reporters' log. Survivors tell their stories at MSNBC, ITV and Sky News. The Wall Street Journal has a free article, "Bloggers and Photographers Chronicle Chaos in London," which is loaded with links and reactions. Both Sky News and the WSJ have what may become one of the emblematic photos of the attacks, taken by picturephone from the London tube.

THE USUAL NONSENSE follows in the next entry, for those looking for a break from the London attacks.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY FROM THE CITY OF BIG SHOULDERS!

Here are fireworks looking out over Lake Michigan toward Navy Pier...

...and a view from the ground. A lot of cities have fireworks, but...

How many can give you Jim Peterik performing his "Vehicle" unplugged, with the crowd singing the horn part?

And how many can give you Off Broadway (USA)?

They got a good, good band with a U.S. beat... what else could you want for July 4th?

If you answered, "a respite for some of our troops at Camp Victory in Baghdad," you got that too. And they will soon be joined by Lena Haddix, a 73-year-old great-grandmother who recently finished a six-month deployment to Kuwait and then signed up for a six-month deployment to Baghdad.

I will be celebrating the fact that people with the highest standard of living and the lowest taxes in the Western World fought a sometimes unpopular war for our freedom. For some reason, the fact that this nation was started by "the colonial American elite" does not make me want to join Flag-burning Day activities. I'll be back to the usual o­n Tuesday. In the meantime, if you missed it, scroll down for a little bit o­n Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's retirement posted Sunday.
