The Chicago Tribune editorial 'Go ahead, celebrate' refers to President Obama's order to assassinate Osama bin Laden as a 'gutsy call'. It was an inexperienced over-his-head president stooping to using a most basic human response (He killed, he must die) in attempting to save his failing administration from failing even more than it is.
Wouldn't it be better to admit if bin Laden could figure out how to kill 3,000 people in one attack he must have lots of other plans to repeat the deed, and also must know lots of bad people who could do the same. So lock him up and ask him questions for the rest of his natural life.
Is it too much to expect a President to avoid catering to the lowest human instincts (Obama's apparent answer to too many problems) in using every tool available to reduce the possibility of future deadly attacks?

For about a year I had small offices in Clayton MO, in the Country Club Plaza in KC. I rode a ten-speed bike around Lake Michigan (The bottom half in one week in June 1978, another week for the top half in 1980, used the Badger both times.
Don't get to travel much anymore, but still try to rent a car and go around the Lake in March every year. Sure, there's still snow, and it's not warm, OTOH there are no bugs and no toursts. Greatest little tavern in the world is Sherry's Port Bar in Garden UP MI
