I found the celebration very disturbing. And where did those people come from outside the Whitehouse late Sunday night?

While it is right and just that an evil man was stopped, celebrating a death is just wrong no matter who it is. With all due respect to the people who lost loved ones to this terrorist.

Certainly not a national holiday, maybe a couple of cold beers.

You have a disconcerting habit of tenaciously clinging to the basest tendencies of humanity.

I agree with the sentiment of that newspaper report. Thousands of people have died because of Bin Laden, but it is not a football match where you cheer each time your team scores. I believe it should be a time of quiet reflection, particularly for those who lost loved ones who now know that this man will no longer ply his evil trade, and hopefully this knowledge will bring them some kind of closure. Celebrating the death of another human being is in my opinion wrong, even the death of someone as evil as Bin Laden. We all looked on in disgust at the images from Muslim countries of crowds cheering and celebrating the deaths due to the 9/11 atrocity, but are we in the west any better if we behave in exactly the same manner? I think not!
