We Read It On The Twitter

I first heard of the death of Osama bin Laden as I
laid down to sleep on Sunday night around 11pm.

I noticed the twitter feeds were blowing up, even
more than usual.

People were talking about the president planning a late
evening speech, and the buzz was that of a possible big
announcement that we finally got to Osama.

Now, for most of that evening, I was watching the Phillies
take on the Mets in Philadelphia.

What I ended up missing was amazing...

Unreal stuff right there.

That would have been my preferred memory of this moment.

But I have Twitter.

So be it.


This morning I felt better than I had in a long time.

The drive to work is a blur.

My American Flag lapel pin shined like a new penny.

It was going to be a great day.

A day I would never forget.

And there aren't many of those types of days during a lifetime, and
I was looking forward to this one.

That was until I started reading about possible conspiracy
theories, and how people think they were being lied to.

This upset me greatly.

This is a time for our country to pull together and stand united.

But it felt more divided than usual.

I thought about going on a one man crusade to try and change the
minds of everyone that thought/felt differently than I did.

But that's not my job.

I actually feel as though I am going outside of my comfort zone, just
writing this much on the website that I contribute to.

So, before I do more harm than good, I will wrap this up.

I want to thank everyone involved in this successful mission.

I support our troops, and believe it when they say they got
their man.

The world is a better place today, and I am thankful to all involved.


Speaking of wrapping things up...

I think I'll buy some stock in Reynolds Wrap, as I can
hear all the foil hats being made around me.

Kinda reminds me of the unforgettable quote of that villain of villains, Snidely Whiplash, every time he was thwarted by the erstwhile dutiful Dudley Doright, "Curses, foiled again!! I echo my support for the valiant Americans who took down the most evil creature ever to walk the earth. In spite of whatever aftermath we may see, I sincerely believe we are a much better planet now.
