People Talk: What’s your reaction to the death of Osama Bin Laden?

By May 2, 2011

 

Bill Vandegrift, El Dorado Hills “I’m thrilled. What a great day for this country. I’€™m especially thankful for the 9/11 victims and their families.”

Charles Puckett, Orange County “€œIt’€™s great for the country. The prior generation had Pearl Harbor and VJ Day. We had 9/11 and today. It’€™s amazing to me that he avoided capture for so long.”

Ed Golden, Rescue “€œI couldn’t give a rat’€™s ass about that guy. That’€™s what he was, a desert rat, hiding in caves like a coward. It’€™s great we got him but let’s not make too big a deal out of this.”€

Nick Pulos, El Dorado Hills “€œMy reaction is that I think this happened a long time ago and they’€™re just announcing it now … the death of Osama. They caught him seven years ago, but that’€™s not the reason we went to war anyway. Well, it was the initial reason, but the war was about a lot more than Osama Bin Laden.”

Thomas Dennin, El Dorado Hills “€œReally? He’€™s dead? I hadn’€™t heard. Well, justice is finally done. I hope they handled it in a way that doesn’€™t enflame the extremists. Even if it does, I’€™m more willing to take that risk than to be intimidated. We’€™re sending a message that we’€™re not going to roll over, even if it takes 10 years.”
