Terrorism in Paris

Another blow this morning to public safety and to the role of satire in our society.  It appears that the terrorist attack and killings were yet another attempt to increase the distrust of large Muslim populations in Europe.  We each are diminished by such slaughter.  The image above is from Twitter.

I'm trying to stay on task despite the events in Paris.  I've finished and shipped a new article titled "Dear Member of the Board" for the January issue of The Risk Universe magazine.  I've accepted two new speaking engagements. And I'm about half way through my lecture notes for the first class in my introductory risk course for UW graduate students tomorrow evening. 

My column for this month's issue of ASA News & Notes will be the next project in the queue, and will look more closely at the increasing reach of terrorism.
