OSAMA BIN LADEN IS DEAD: NPR
While I understand there is no way that this event can go unmentioned here at "Women On..."
I need to confess:
My first reaction was not "Justice has been done."
My first reaction was not "An evil man has been removed from this earth."
My first reaction was not "Glory Hallelujah!"
My first reaction was, "Oh My God. It will be SOOOO interesting to see how this plays out for the president in the next few days."
I am at once hopeful...
...and hiding under my bed with my fingers in my ears.
Events of the past decade have led me to be almost certain that the media, politicians, pundits, and people of this great country are on the threshold of a Great Opportunity... to make total asses of themselves.
If only it could be some other way.
