"My recent article on the U.S. government’s assassination of Osama bin Laden elicited many favorable responses, along with a negative one that advised me that this man 'got what he deserved.' The reader went on to ask 'how dare you imply that we owed him the 'right' to be captured and brought to justice.' How effortlessly we make our judgments when our minds are in the default mode, and we need only parrot the words of those in authority!" (05/14/11)
