Something For Which We Have All Been Waiting...Or Not


While I understand there is no way that this event can go unmentioned on any blog to which I contribute my thoughts...

I need to confess:

My first reaction was not "Justice has been done."

My first reaction was not "An evil man has been removed from this earth."

My first reaction was not "Glory Hallelujah!"


My first reaction was, "Oh My God. It will be SOOOO interesting to see how this plays out for the president in the next few days."

I am at once hopeful...

...and hiding under my bed with my fingers in my ears.

Events of the past decade have led me to be almost certain that the media, politicians, pundits, and people of this great country are on the threshold of a Great Opportunity... to make total asses of themselves.

If only it could be some other way.

  1. Not my first thought, but it was definitely in my top 5. My feelings are too complex about all of this now.

  2. It was odd. NOBODY at the restaurant was talking about this today. I think people (the ones who have some sense of propriety and/or decency left) are conflicted about how to react. Most of the folks I know (luckily) seem to adhere to the belief that one does not celebrate the death of another human being. Maybe there is hope for this country after all. At least for Scappoose...
