Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Usama Bin Laden is GONE

Last night around 8:30 Fox news indicated they were going to have a speech from the President shortly. Shortly turned out to be about 2 hours but he did finally get on and tell us that Bin Laden had been killed by a US ground attack. That makes it almost 10 years since the attack on the World Trade Center.

I really got a kick out of Girraldo Riveras while he was doing the initial commentary. He was talking about this and that as to why the President would be talking after 10:00 pm to the Nation and went through several scenarios. Then he got this great big grin on his face and said something to the order of---wouldn't it be great if he was going to announce that Usama Bin Laden had been killed---It would be a great day if that son-of-a-bitch was dead. He kept grinning and said to the others that were on line. If that is the case we will be dancing around here and high fiving and celebrating his death. Then he said this isn't any official news release and I'm not saying that is what is going to be announced. I am just saying it would be news worthy of a late night announcement.

I just sat there and grinned when he said that s-o-b. I am sure he doesn't know he said it on National TV. I remember when he was tracking Bin Laden all over the world and remember when they thought they had him when the bombed his camp site on the Pakistan/Afghanistan border. A miss by only a few hours. I remember how badly crushed Girraldo was.

I am glad this is over. Terrorism will not go away because of it but this hit will have psychological ramifications on the terrorist world for a long time to come and maybe, just maybe, slow it down.

Don't know whether to say SEMPER FI or HOO YAA and we will probably never know but which ever branch did it I say GOOD ON YA!!!
