i'm not a fan of killing people. i never have been. however, i suppose this particular person had it coming for quite a while now. still, i will never really get used to people cheering when other people die. whether it's in the streets of palestine the day after 9/11, or right now in washington. yes i know it is understandable, but that doesn't make it right.

i do think i'm hearing the word closure a little too much. of course i understand the great big sigh of relief, but please let us not pretend this is all over now.

peace to all of you, my friends..

Exactly. Two wrongs don't make a right, no matter how big the original wrong was. I find the whole thing more tragic, as in, it shouldn't have had to be this way to begin with, than cheer-worthy. =/

I was just talking to my mom about this. I'm especially concerned about the message that people are sending to their children, to future generations, by this partying in the streets because someone was killed.

I totally agree with you, and the other comments above. *sigh*...

I think I can see why people are treating this like a sporting event. The information people get to hear is very basic, good and bad, us and them - So people take to the streets to celebrate. Understandable, I guess. After a series of draws and losses we just won a very big game. As long as we remember the season is not over yet.
