London, Bloggers, and the Aftermath: From Slate & the WP has some has a broad range of opinion and reporting about the London bombings.

Robert MacMillan's always interesting "Random Access" column in the Washington Post's section has a special report called "Witnesses to History" about the role bloggers played in keeping the world informed during and after the explosions. In particular, MacMillan praises the big London dailies for allowing bloggers to post to their sites--something that's not too common in the newsrooms of America. (Reading this story may require free registration--take the time to do it; it's worth it.)

BTW, at risk of being beaten about the head and shoulders by my fellow partners-in-blog, I still think there's room in the world for professional journalists. But maybe we can all work together a little more.
