If revenge is, as Khan once observed, a dish best served cold, then Osama bin Laden got his lunch straight from the freezer. Ten years is a long time to wait for payback. Not as long as some, but certainly long enough that he probably had a moment of confusion when the Navy Seals burst in, wondering if he had forgotten to pay his cable bill. Then, probably just as quickly, he remembered us infidels and how he probably should have been expecting something like that all along.
Then there's this guy Al Kydah. He keeps talking about how he's going to get us back for what we did. Which is a little ridiculous since he was already in the middle of figuring out how to mess with us before we ever messed with him. There was that matter of the passenger trains, which really stinks since up until a week ago you could pretty much walk on to Amtrak with your family size shampoo and personal box cutters and not even be worried about being asked for a ticket until you were half way across the country. I know. It's not nearly the kind of revenge that they he was hoping for, but it will do in a pinch. In the meantime, I understand that he has been taking credit for the tornadoes in the southeast as well as the NFL lockout. He's not a nice guy. He's a terrorist, after all.
And so we wait for cranky guy down the street to do something crazy. Unless he blows himself up first.
