  • This will no doubt be a hot topic for a while. No sense in getting all pissy about it, just skip over that part of the news.

  • It's news, its big news. What are you wanting to hear about - snookie, the weather, the latest tech toy,...geez. Turn the channel if you are tired of it. Some of us haven't even spent 20 minutes hearing about it yet because we work and take care of a family.

  • Well, it WAS big news. He is dead. WHat ese is there to discuss???
    The only thing I consider worthwhile discussing is that we might be risking retaliation form Bin Laden's worshipers/gang members,whatever.

  • It's just the beginning. I was at the mall today and they were selling shirts at a kiosk that said "We got him!" with a pic of his face on it. I, for one, would not want to wear something like that.

  • I wish they would but I believe there are a few reasons it just won't die. First the media sees it as a big diversion and a positive one for Obama. Also the biggie is that there are many who have begun to realize how many inconsistancies there are in the whole story. That leads to more questions that keep it alive.
