Bin Laden’s Dead

So this is it.

The mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks was not only found but apparently, after a firefight with American troops, his body now whistles when the wind blows.

Yes, good news indeed but I’ve got a few thoughts to throw out for everybody.

First, this guy has an endless following of maniacs just like him. It wouldn’t be unreasonable to believe that the terror is not over just yet.

Second, I think I need to see proof of his death. I’m not quite entirely convinced.

Third, why do I think that there will be a tape of Bin Laden released tomorrow, mocking the U.S. by saying he’s not dead? After years of dodging attacks it’s almost an knee-jerk reaction to think this way.

And finally, President Obama had a line in his speech tonight in which he announced Bin Laden’s death. It went a little something like this:

“America can do whatever we set our minds to.”

You hear that, America? Recession’s over! Gas prices are dropping! Jobs are in abundance! We’ve all got affordable health care! We’re all gonna get laid!

Well…if it were only that easy.

But at least I’m trying, right?
