"To thousands of college students, 'bred in an era of fear,'” as we’ve been told ad nauseam, killing bin Laden apparently meant the opportunity to set things on fire, climb flag poles and scream so inaudibly [sic] into cameras and microphones that viewers at home couldn’t tell half the time whether it was about the cold blooded execution of a terrorist mastermind, Mardi Gras or the end of the NCAA Championships. The constant 'USA! USA! USA!' might have been a tip-off, but it was chanted at times with such force that one wondered if it were a threat rather than an celebratory refrain." (05/10/11)
