    How did you find out Bin Laden was killed?

    Information spreads fast today, so I am just wondering how you received the information? Did you go to bed last night without knowing? I was actually getting ready to go to bed when the phone rang. I thought it must be something important, because the phone never rings that late at my house.

    It was before the president gave his address last night... I am not sure what time his speech was.

    Curiosity kills - and so do our special forces

    My husband and I just watched Ax Men and turned it off to check on the weather and saw the headline.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    He (Osama) called me, told me he was willing his Explosive for Dummies and his favorite turban.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    A good evaluation soccerboy.

    I was asleep when my neighbor phoned and told me about it.
