Serving up Sweet Justice on Easter

While deeply engrossed in reviewing public opinion datasets on immigration reform last night, my brother sent me a text message: “HOLY SH*T!  Osama bin Laden has been confirmed killed!” 

In scanning the headlines on the Fox News, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Politico, and The Washington Post websites (oh, there was a speech too?), I quickly learned the details about bin Laden’s death on Easter, followed by the DNA testing to confirm his identity.  My brother’s next text message: “I’m havin jack and coke, lol!”  Cheers to that, I say!  And well-deserved given his own service and sacrifice in Iraq within the War on Terror.

So much for that post on immigration reform…

Instead, I want to offer a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to the brave men and women serving behind the front lines in the global War on Terror, particularly those responsible for permanently ending bin Laden’s reign of terror.  Without a doubt, it’s been a very long, difficult fight for our soldiers since the day they were called up to defend our nation after bin Laden’s horrific attack against the United States on September 11, 2001.  Thanks to their tireless efforts, justice has been served to the victims and their families of bin Laden’s string of terrorist attacks at home and abroad.  They’ve certainly made Easter this year a holiday to remember forever.
