I would rather have some cheer and some mourn than to be totally ignored.

A fair point. I'm sure there were numerous people that mourned bin Laden's passing... a number of which we would also like dead.

Perhaps the bigger lesson is to live in such a way that nobody spends over nine and a half years trying to kill you. Or, at the very least, not a major industrialized nation.

Amen.

Or at the very least, I'll settle for my passing being like my life, unremarked.

As I have no intention of butchering innocent civilians in job lots or convincing impressionable young people that their god wants them to strap on explosive undergarments, I'd say the probability of my demise eliciting random festivities world-wide rather closely approaches zero. ;)

I'm not contradicting you with this... but as a member of a Black church, I hope that people can cheer because they know where I'm going when I die.
