Yesterday was a warm sunny day here in western Washington State. So I took advantage of the dry weather and a day off to get our house ready for summer--cleaning the grill and the lawn furniture.

There's plenty of information on the who, what & when of the attack on most news sites. (Although, this morning I noticed CNN spent more time discussing Our Grand Nagus' supposed Russian Connection). Even The Seattle Times ran the story.
Britain raised Terror Threat Level to "critical."
In addition to predictably raising the threat level, this latest terrorist attack is--yet again--following the same tiresome trajectory.
We're being told we should get use to scenes like this:

Meanwhile, leftists are attempting to ward off Islamic evil with their Candlelight Magic--again.
I'm with Todd Starnes on this: I'm sick of news anchors telling us not to rush to judgement on terror attacks.
Of course, Abedi the Asshole was yet another "known wolf."
This is just one factor in what The Diplomad calls The No Surprise List.

...along with the predictable post-attack procedure...
