Osama Bin Laden Dead
Apparently killed in an US military action in Pakistan.

My thoughts are dominated by the ideas that first off, no matter his crimes, he was a human being and neither his death nor anyone else's should be cheered. It lessens us, if nothing else.

The second though is closer to "so what?" the genie is long out of the bottle and my impression is that he was no longer needed to keep Islamic terrorism going. The Arabic Spring will do farm more harm, in the long run, to Osama's cause than his death.
