Mister Boffo (5/1/11)

It took more than 10 years, and access to the most powerful and sophisticated military equipment and personnel in the world, but the United States has finally captured (dead, as it happens) Osama bin Laden. Shortly after the 9/11 attacks, I was hopeful we would find bin Laden. A few months later, I was doubtful. A few years later, I was sure he had been lost to the caves and mountains of Afghanistan. I had given up hope and lost my determination. Fortunately, our special ops troops and intelligence officers kept their resolve. Tonight, they’ve pulled off the (almost) impossible task of finding a single person in a world of seven billion. While most of us resigned ourselves to defeat, they kept up the manhunt. Tonight, their heroic efforts have paid off handsomely, and thanks to them, I feel a profound mix of pride, gratitude, and relief.
