Bin Laden Dead

Osama bin Laden is dead, and from the looks of this roundup of the newspapers today, everyone is pumped. You gotta love the enthusiasm and crassness of the tabloids: “We Got the Bastard!” and “Rot In Hell!”

When reports said he was hiding out in a $1 million compound in a modern Pakistani suburb, this is not what I pictured. A million dollars, and they didn’t even have a phone or internet connection? I guess it all went to the 18-foot walls.

It was a good idea to have the special forces kill him directly — what must that have felt like? — instead of flattening him with a bomb. But still, I need some proof. (This photo of a dead bin Laden has proven to be a fake.) Remember when  Saddam Hussein’s sons were killed in 2003 there was much disbelief and skepticism from the Muslim world. I’d be shocked if the same thing didn’t happen here.
