Default Osama Bin Ladden killed

FYI, turn on the news...

Sorry to post this non-RR stuff, but I think it's kind of important.

I remember that morning like it was yesterday. I was actually about to go to bed when I got a phone call to turn on the news at around 10:30.

I have to say that I will never forget 9/11, where I was, and what I was doing that day and how it made me feel.

There is an 'Off Topic Forum' for a reason.

Hmm, fortunately, on the forum people are identified, at least by ID, and we know that Troy is a boring troll sometimes.

We need more dead terrorists!

Since we can partially thank Osama Bein Deadin for the hardships we now face while trying to take photos, I think it's completely on topic, and relevant.

I hate to say this, because it sounds so violent and I'm not a violent guy....but you are right, Lloyd. These vicious animals have had 10 more years to hurt people than they ever should have had. Thanks to the folks on Seal Team 6 for taking care of UBL.

Again, I agree. I just got back from a trip which involved 7 flights and numerous border crossings. All of the security procedures involved were a royal PITA. I am old enough to remember when commercial air travel was a fun thing. Sadly, that is no longer the case.

There was a lot of stuff I was about to write but I realized a stupid comment like that doesn't deserve the attention.

Me thinks that some should be thankful that they live in a country where their attempts at humor won't get them in trouble.

(Heck - I probably wouldn't have survived myself in many a country.)

There was talk about adding Pittsburgh to the 3-C Ohio service, but that died when the entire project was scuttled.
