RIP Osama Bin Laden

It finally happened. On May 1, 2001, Osama Bin Laden was taken out in Abbottabad, Paksitan by a US Navy Seal task force, shot in the head inside a compound built specifically for the purpose of holding Bin Laden.

I was very happy to hear the news. In fact, I was almost as exuberant as those who camped out in front of the White House, in Times Square, and at Ground Zero, singing our National Anthem and chanting "USA! USA!"

Facebook and Twitter were all abuzz with activity as the news continues to mount, details become more and more available.

Information has steadily flowed public about the operation. But I heard a lot of people complain about the celebrations in Washington DC and New York after the news came out. Those complaints bothered me. Was no one around when the towers came down and saw how frightened those people were? Did no one remember the 3000 people killed that day? Do we not know who was responsible?

Look, there are going to be some people that will take the celebration too far. But for people to go into the streets and celebrate in NYC and DC is going to be normal. I'm glad they celebrated.

And now the celebrations have subsided and the country has calmed down about it. The celebrations weren't that bad, were they?

This post is simulcast in full living Technicolor on and on Facebook.
