Mets-Phillies game is on ESPN right now, crowd chanting "USA USA USA". Pretty funny, players have no clue what is going on.

Which part don't you believe (this is a serious question, not basis for some thrusting-finger-in-chest argument)?

A) that it's actually him

B) that he hasn't been dead and on ice for ages, just waiting for the prime "we need distraction" moment to wheel him out

C) insert alternate option here

I'm surprised at my own reaction. It's fear. It seemed (at least to me that he was somewhat impotent). Who is next in line, it's not like the hatred will dissipate because of this. Someone tell me I'm wrong.

If it's so hard to prove our president is American, proving Osama's death will be no less controversial.

if this had happened a few hours ago, i would have gone into the city and down to the White House.

this whole "he was hiding in Pakistan the whole time" is indeed going to be interesting.

some of the FOX news panelists are framing this as an us verses them. We are winning the war against these MUSLIM extremists.

I see this more as a war against a group of terrorists.

My reaction is much more celebratory and more "HOLY SHIT" than when U2 debuted Zooropa in Sao Paulo.

I'd thought I never see the day. People are celebrating everywhere - I was watching the Mets vs. Phillies game too and heard chants, but I had found out two minutes after. Wonder what Obama's gonna say..

Me too. I won't be sorry he's dead.

Did I hear correctly that they've raised the "threat level" or whatever, in case of immediate retaliation? That would make sense.

Of course, this won't end any of our many wars, this won't magically make us safe, and we'll continue our Theater Of Security. This is the way of our world now and doesn't change a damned thing.

But still - I'm sure not sorry he's dead.

They did raise it - and I agree, I definitely don't feel sorry.

Quick, someone confirm - is Obama going to pre-empt the end of Celebrity Apprentice?

That is delicious.
