Interesting and poignant article by Morgan Meis over at The Smart Set. I like how he contrasted Hitler’s speeches with Osama bin Laden’s.

Whatever sort of emotional response I may have had on hearing the news that Osama bin Laden had been killed by U.S. forces was immediately confused by everyone else’s response.

Someone mentioned something about the death of Osama Bin Laden this morning (that would be around 9-10PM EST), but it took me a while to realize what exactly he was talking about. He had gotten a message from someone on his phone, via Twitter, email, Facebook, or IM, and mentioned it in passing. I was way too tired to realize what he was talking about. It’s only when I got home, at around 1:30PM that I understood what had happened. The US, thanks to some CIA and Joint Special Operations Command managed to hunt down and kill Osama bin Laden.
