So many of you may have heard that there was some violence up in Northern Ireland from the IRA -- troubles that were supposed to be over.

Irish and UK media are paying tribute to the men killed, but I find it interesting that there is practically no mention of the others injured in the accident. And I wonder if it isn't because two of them were Polish immigrants. I wonder, if they weren't UK nationals if they wouldn't be all over the news, being interviewed, the country following their health and progress, everyone pouring with sympathy at these victims. But instead, there's just this really eerie silence as the injured are mentioned in passing.
