London off the front page?

Both today and yesterday, an email correspondent has found the LAT's lack of a front page story on the London terrorist bombings off-key. He notes the continuing front-page coverage in the New York Times and writes:

Am I the only one who finds it bizarre that the London bombing rated only page 6 coverage in the LA Times this morning? The greatest terrorist attack since 1940s on the soil of our greatest ally and it's page 6?

Both days the LAT has handled the London follows with a refer item in the "Inside" box at the bottom of the page—the print equivalent of a link.

Also: A bunch of reaction to the new Current section at the Washington Monthly's Political Animal blog.
