If this is your first stop of the morning, I tip my hat off to you, but you may have missed some great news from last night. After decades of searching (yes, we started looking before 9/11) we’ve found and dispatched Bin Laden.
While politicians and their lackeys quickly try to get in front of this story and take credit for taking down Public Enemy #1, I think it is important to not lose sight of who really deserves the credit. Our service men and women that put their lives on the line everyday. We have numerous luxuries here that we write about for fun. For every gluttonous meal at Commander’s Palace, for every po-boy from Parkway, for every pound of crawfish we peel our way through there are thousands of soldiers stuck eating MREs out in the middle of nowhere, halfway across the globe from their friends and family. So while we bask in the glory of American tenacity and follow through, please take a moment to thank those who have really made this all possible and allow us to live this charmed life.
