Really Bad Timing
According to a report in the Times of India, the city of Mumbai bounced back to normal faster than either New York or London, when it suffered a major terrorist attack last year. You might ask who is qualified to make such an assessment. Amazingly enough, it rests on personal anecdotal impressions. Jason and Jenny Cairns-Lawrence, a couple from Britain, somehow managed to be present in New York on 9/11, in London during the 7/7 subway bombing, and were on vacation in Mumbai when terrorists struck the city last year. The report didn't say, but I have to wonder if they've been investigated for terrorist connections. As paranoid as law enforcement usually is, I'd be surprised if such a startling coincidence didn't raise some eyebrows.
