Weird to read auto-tweets from travel websites about "10 Great Hotels in Paris!" etc. when there are shootings and explosions happening.— David Lebovitz (@davidlebovitz) November 13, 2015
No doubt Paris killers were disturbed by a video. Or perhaps motivated by income inequality. Nothing to do with radical Islam whatsoever.— Steve Cuozzo (@stevecuozzo) November 13, 2015
Update: November 14, 12:15 p.m.: Alice Waters expressed her shock at the attacks in a post to Instagram. Her daughter was eating dinner down the street from one of the incidents and is safe.
