No, there is a big house fire in that area. You heard all the fire trucks going to it.

No celebrations as far as I know in Pittsburgh, although people are gathering outside the White House steps and singing the national anthem. Maybe city council will do the same on the city-county building in the morning? I doubt it.

If anything, I would expect some kind of celebration in Shanksville, but even that's out of the way from Pittsburgh.

A few thousand people went downtown in State College and sang the national anthem too.

I just found out when I woke up this morning. I don't know about "celebrating," but I am happy about it. I guess I am also cautiously optimistic that hings may become better now.

So they're revoking the Patriot Act and the TSA will no longer molest us at the airport? A celebration is in order!

Where did you hear that? Or are you just making assumptions?

I can't imagine the Patriot Act will be revoked. The US is bracing for terrorist attacks in retaliation to his death.

Hopes,
You need to stop taking things so literally on here.

Sarcasm, sarcasm, sarcasm.....

PS - I am glad he is gone but, someone else will just step into his place if the root cause is not dealt with.

PSS - This just reinforces my position to not travel to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for work. They asked last month and I refused. There will be reprisals against Americans worldwide, no doubt.
