Two Minute Hate

I'm sure this will stir the pot...

Is the world a better place without Osama Bin Laden in it?  Certainly.

Will this undo the Patriot Act, two wars, state-sanctioned torture and untold death and destruction  Certainly not.

I don't mean to make a value judgement about anyone's feelings.  I really don't.  I just happen to think that the people partying in the streets are missing some perspective.  This isn't an epilogue to a clear narrative that started 10 years ago, its a tiny event in an incredibly messy situation.
