As we watched the tragedy in Mumbai unfold through the Web (web tv coverage from India was better than CNN or MSNBC on cable), the horror of it all really sank in.
When the first accounts came out that guests at the Taj hotel were being herded into rooms, locked in and then ignored, I said, "How odd, why would you take hostages and then not pay attention to them? Why wouldn't you make any demands?"
Sarah said "They're going to blow the hotel up. That's why they don't care about the hostages. They're going to kill them in the explosion."
Turns out she was right.
"Mercifully, the group, armed with plastic explosives, underestimated the strength of the
105-year-old building’s solid foundations."
