The good news is that my dear friend who just went to India was in and out of the Mumbai train station a whole eight hours before people started killing other people there. The bad news is the tail end of the sentence.
Also, I know the family of someone who was reporting on the terrorism in Mumbai - they just moved there last summer. I sent the 11-year-old daughter an e-mail to make sure everyone was OK.
"ya we r fine but there r these terrorists r attacking this building near me"
