Bad news and sadly, I think this and the past attack are only the beginning.

And I used to like vacationing in Europe...

Hollande is speaking now. Selecting quotes as he speaks.

"77 victims, including many children. About 20 wounded."
"terrorist attack"
"France has been struck on the day of her national holiday..."
"France as a whole is under threat of Islamist terrorism"
"Finally, I've decided that the state of emergency that was to end on the 26th of July will be extended by three months"
"We are going to reinforce our actions in Iraq and Syria..."
"France is afflicted, but she is strong. She will always be stronger than the fanatics"

Well spoken, Mr. President.

Ooooo! Hillary just said we are at war with "radical jihadists". She almost knows who is at war with us. All she needs is a few presidential security briefs to really know who the enemy is. Wait...never mind...forget I said that.

Attention Americans in Nice: The United States government urges you to use social media to contact friends & family to let them know you are safe (or not).

Attention Australians in Nice: Your government has established a hotline for you to let your government know if you are safe (or not).

Who ya gonna call? Personally, if I were a sheeple there I'd be practicing my Aussie accent.

However, I say just lay low for the next 12-24 hours and then carry on with your scheduled plans. Plans that don't involve large crowds, that is.

Two Americans, Sean and Brodie Copeland (father and son, Brodie was 11) are not contacting anyone.

RIP to the fallen, prayers to the injured.

Waiting for the juvenile, yet seemingly obligatory "ban trucks" comment. Let's not go there.

Twitter growling

Couple of feeds off Deutsche Welle, one was a graphic that says:
"Je suis sick of this shit." Another mocked the social-media community...

At least the French president said the words our apologizer in chief won't.

The image you posted goes hand-in-hand with a phrase I've come to loath in recent years: "thoughts and prayers".

What? This is the first I've heard of this. Do you have any reliable sources that you could link to?
