The Olympic games took one of those nasty, although not totally unexpected twists, Friday night. In Centennial Park a bomb went off and reminded everyone how vulnerable we all are in the modern city. For those killed and wounded it was of course much more than a symbolic event, and for those of us watching this staged pageant from the comfort of our homes it was a reality check.
