The End of Osama Bin Laden: It’s Never the End

Osama Bin Laden is finally dead,
one cheap bullet to the head.
What it really cost is what I dread.

We want to feel good about something.  At the same time, feeling good might not really feel so good.  These muscled issues have pushed against our collective moral fiber for a decade (or longer).  We can’t agree on the nature of these forces, but we will share the catharsis of this apparent resolution.  Yes, it feels good–we’re stuck with that for now.  Let’s have a Bud and wave our flag.  But tomorrow, let’s have coffee and make plans to patch the holes we’ve put in that flag.  It’s life we should be celebrating, not death.
