    lives were permanently altered, and then further altered and twisted by the neo-cons all-war-all-the-time mentality?  Maybe they see some possibility of common sense trumping (sic) rabid and empty rhetoric?  Maybe the fact of this kind of competency from the White House and all related entities is just exactly what they (and we) need to see.

    I'm not going to diss people who were traumatized by the events and then further damaged by the media narratives, outright lies, and BS patriotism foisted on them 24 hours a day.

    Let em cheer.  It's not the end of terrorism, but it's a successful end to a mission President Obama made a top priority.  Reality will intrude, and our next task is understanding that 9/11/2001 was just one more in a long list of brutal attacks on the innocent.  We really need to get it that the rest of the world has been dealing with this for decades.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
