Almost forget: Yesterday's story on Slate, a short press review on the Russian rock festival double suicide bombing in which 15 died. Pictures of bodies ripped open and everything. For propriety's sake, I didn't mention that the band playing when the bombs went off was called "Crematorium." Even though gruesome things are happening all over, I found this episode incredibly disturbing -- perhaps because most of the victims were drunken Slavic youths.
