What a cruel blow to Pakistan and cricket fans everywhere. Just a couple of hours ago I left a speaker event on Pakistan with optimism for its future. My Pakistani classmate Osman Khan emailed me, the first I knew of it, saying "I am sorry about what happened in Lahore today. It is sad that my country has come to a point when friends of Pakistan are being attacked. When no one was ready to tour the country, the Sri Lankans came-and this is what happened."
A dark day for all concerned.
