I didn’t hear the news till this morning: Osama bin Laden, the guy behind the September 11th terrorist attacks and other unspeakable crimes against humanity, was killed by U.S. Navy Seals during a 40-minute raid on his compound. The news broke last night and within minutes there were celebrations in front of the White House. Had I known, I would have been there myself, camera in hand.
I don’t usually celebrate killing but here is a guy that deserved to die.
A few random quotes that fit today:

- Historic fact noted by a Facebook friend
"I'll see your birth certificate, and raise you a terrorist warlord."
