If you are Christian, Father Martin Sylvester has some words of comfort on seven-seven. I'll take my words from Christopher Hitchens, who seems a little distracted, but signs off by saying that it is we who must set the pace in this conflict. Here's a better effort just a few hours later.
A small coincidence. Seventy-seven is the atomic number of iridium. You may recall that the object that fell to earth and destroyed the dinosaurs left a distinctive trace of iridium at the K-T boundary marker. Perhaps we should take this as an omen that these holdovers from a different age will soon be extinct.
