    Prayers for France, and the entire world...such senseless violence.

    OT: a post above mentioned killings in Nigeria, last night I watched "the good lie", sweetest movie I have ever seen, and breaks my heart that stuff like this is happening in this day and age. When will the world learn love is the only way?

    Think that must be the copter with flashing lights I saw on tv. Sadly, I can't follow what the French commentator says.

    God be with these innocent people, and every worker responding. And prayers that the attackers are taken alive. I don't want them to get the easy way out and achieve their idea of martyrdom.

    Four of five swat members spotted on roof of printworks. No fire. Light is fading fast though. Soon be dark there.
