I have been following with some interest the continuing media circus regarding the attempted bombing at Times Square. Most of the chatter revolves around the fact that the bomb was such a amateurish effort.
I am reminded of a bombing that took place in England a while back. The I.R.A. bombed a hotel that was hosting the then Prime Minister Margret Thatcher and members of her conservative party. The bomb killed a few people, but the prime minister was not injured. Later, Mrs. Thatcher received a note from the I.R.A. that said,
" You have to be lucky every time, we only have to be lucky once"
Maybe we should remember that..............
