Bin Laden's Death

I just couldn't work up a lot of emotion about the death of Osama bin Laden Sunday night. Yeah, I'm glad we got the SOB. Not in a vengeful way, but in a "Yes!" kind of way, like the way Marv Albert narrates a successful basketball shot.

There was, however, dancing in the street which took me by surprise, as well as some of the strong emotions of revenge that some voiced. The debate emerged on Adam Hamilton's FB page, and more surprisingly, on TKC. Now we know Tony to be a shit stirrer of the finest kind, but it was an honest question he asked about people's response to the event of bin Laden's death. He got the predictable mix of thoughtful and inane comments. It was interesting to see the discussion, especially after reading the 50+ comments from Pastor Hamilton's post. Tony ended up with 58 comments.

One thing: War on Terror: Ain't over by a long shot. Totally different world than in 2001, especially with what went on in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Yemen, etc. etc.
