Breaking News: US Shot & Killed Osama Bin Laden


I was totally shocked when this announcement slipped out. Mostly because I honestly didn't think we were still looking for him. I figured the government had given up on him ages ago.

Part of me wants to say, "So, where's the body? I won't believe you until I see a body!" But then I stop and think about it, and realize that eeew, why would I want to see a corpse? That's disgusting. Surely I can put my faith in the government that they wouldn't make this announcement until they were absolutely sure, right?

I know that I shuldn't be jubilant at a man's death, and I'm not. I don't want to run out into the street and party. I guess I just feel...relieved? That's one less bogeyman in the closet to fear.
