Osama bin Laden

Took about an hour after the news broke to get through & shake off any sense of triumph or twisted, smirking partisan satisfaction. I felt it & didn't like it. It's not even justice at this point, really. It was an unfinished, dirty job we had to take to the end, accomplished efficiently, when the opportunity came, by the best professional military personnel we have. Better to send the evil man to his paradise than having him rot in prison while we argued over how we could legally hang him.

I turned off the TV & went back to the Mets/Phillies game on the radio. Mets won in 14. America!
