About Sunday's news...

I'm really not gonna have much to say about this, as so many others have far more information and insight on it.

I'll just note that an article on Wizbang, ( On The Passing Of Osama Bin Laden ) has a title evocative of a bowel movement, which makes probably the ultimate comment on his elimination.

Other sites mentioned that his body was disposed of, AT SEA, eliminating any chance of his burial site becoming a pilgrimage mecca for his worshipers.  There is some skepticism of that being done just yet (as there are so many things they might wish to learn from a proper examination of his corpse), but the reasons for doing so remain sound and I've no doubt of that being its ultimate destination if it is not already there.

A good friend's reaction to the news was an ironic "Allah akhbar!"

To which, I could only respond, "Amen!".
