Re: “The thrill of the kill: The triumph of Osama bin Laden

Mr. Crowther,

Reading this article gave me great solace in the fact that there were other rational people out there that felt similarly to how I felt upon witnessing the myriad celebrations in the wake of bin Laden's killing. That is, until one little part towards the end of the article that gave me pause and troubled me: as much as I detest shows like Jersey Shore (and for this reason have done my best to ignore them entirely), I'm a little perplexed that you would include a mini-fantasy about bin Laden launching a terrorist attack on the idiotic members of the show. This is the only part of the article that set off an intellectual alarm for me personally, as it seemed to slightly undermine the other points of your article, points which were not only wholly accurate and articulate, but points that needed to be made.

I realize that there is only a slight chance you will read this comment, but if you do, I would appreciate some clarification on that specific part of your article. Thanks.
