Even more shocking is that he was living in a mansion, and not in a mountainous cave. I guess we lost that bet!
I also awoke to the news of the American reaction: partying at Ground Zero and the White House. They don't think this is over, do they? I'm pretty sure bin Laden wasn't controlling his people with a Jafar-like magical staff, hypnotizing them to do his evil bidding. This isn't the end, and in the short-term I worry that there's going to be a lot of hatred and violent intentions pointed straight at us. I'm betting they had a contingency plan for an event like this.

So congratulations Navy Seals on your awesome job yesterday. Let's all keep our eyes on the ball and hope they got some good intel out of that "cave" in "Afghanistan" and that this really does mean the end of this war is significantly closer than it was this time yesterday. But remember, we're not there yet.
